Elm -- Do you see any other SDBs, IBs
or even TBs in your garden that you might want to get those colors into?
Awful to waste good pollen. -- Griff

This was the only seedling to
germinate from the cross of ('Tiny Temptress' X pum21). I am intrigued
by the many hues present in the fall spot of this creamy white pumila
seedling. There are tones of blue, lavender, blue violet, mauve, rose,
and green. The white beard that turns tangerine in the throat is a nice
added touch as did the green flush on the midribs of the standards. I
can think of a lot of things I want to cross this with, but there are only 3
anthers of pollen on this one lone bloom. Alas! And now all the
pumilas have ceased blooming.
