That's a humdinger, Paul. What class is
Griff: This is the first year for this seedling 204-A, so things
could and usually do change some, but right now it stands about 11" tall.
Both parents are SDBs, but 'Cats Eye' has gown out of class at times for
Paul Black, (if I remember his words correctly.) I've lost 'Cats Eyes'
during my garden move so I don't know more than what I learned about it during
it's first season of bloom.
I have already crossed 204-A to one of my
better seedlings...:)...a seedling that performs very well for me here
( not everything does well here in Atlanta ) It has great form and bud
count and is a cross of (Chanted x Cachet). I have never
been able to get a decent photo of it because it is so dark, but it's sibs were
all very pretty shades of orange, pink and pastels. I have great hopes of
taking the reds to pinks and carrying the spot pattern forward along with the
blue beard. Below is a photo of the seedling I write about above.
1401-B has consistent fine form with one, sometimes two branches and up to
five buds per stalk. There is bright tangerine in the throat......Paul
