Donald, I've been viewing all of your AB seedlings
that you've posted over the last month. You have some really nice "mouth
watering" seedlings there. All of your hard work is paying off and it
Your collection (of named varieties) of Arilbreds
is fascinating too. Wonderful photos!!

RELIANCE & sdlgs.
The last of the seedlings from the cross of ZERZURA X JEHOSAPHAT'S RELIANCE
have bloomed. The pollen parent is in the middle. I credit JR with the
good substance of the seedlings. All that bloomed proved to be
weatherproof, a trait JR has that Z does not. None of the seedlings
exhibited quite the same pink 'aura' that JR leaves you with after looking
at it. Here, the seedling on top came the closest but the impression of
being pink isn't quite as strong. The bottom seedling pretty much took its
coloring from Z. I was happy (and lucky) to have seen so many bloom that
were first year seedlings since they were ahead of anything else here..
bottom seedling here was a seedling last year and bloom got frozen
was lucky to see it this year. All but one stalk were eliminated by
