Yes, it's my experience that using Immortality as the pollen parent gives better quality children than using it as pod parent.  Unfortunately, Immortality rarely gives pollen.  Lloyd (Zurbrigg) said to splitting the anthers will yield some pollen.  Some times it works and other times it doesn't.  One year I had several crosses take by using this method.  Bridge and Time and Returning Chameleon were from this proceedure. 
I've a couple of stalks currently in a vase and it looks like they may be giving a tiny bit of pollen again.  Now if the rain will just let up!

Substance of kids from IMM as pod parent here is usually not the best,
but some very good. Overall quality of flowers in her seedlings varies
a <lot> depending on what it's crossed with.

I think others who've used IMM as pollen parent find it easier to get
better flower quality. Betty? Mary Lou?

> substance is good, which really surprises me being out of IMM.
