Hello, Loic,


I had about thirty seedlings bloom from that cross.  They were a very varied bunch, mostly pinks and lavenders with poor form; about a fourth were SA.  I only selected two, the blue amoena and another that looked just like Celebration Song with orange horns.  Unfortunately, this year the CS look alike  faded so badly that it looked terrible, and I pitched it.  Be Mine is a very nice, vigorous pink here.  I think the form of the amoena comes from its grandparent, Celebration Song.  I don’t know where the blue comes from, but it doesn’t fade.  I like it.

Hello Francelle,


this baby of yours is very pretty!


i'm surprised Be Mine can  give such a good shape! Especially married to a bad shaped one!

Lucky you!


Unfortunately, my Be Mine didn't like the climate here. It just melted away...

Will never know what i could have done with it!


Thanks to you and your postings last year of 76-25 and 76-36 that were SO pretty, i've ordered Barbara my love, and it's arrived yesterday!

As well as Chariots of fire; they should give a boost to my breeeding program!


Thanks again for posting your marvels, it's very stimulating!

I wonder what would happen if I crossed 12-18 G, that pink space age seedling with this one.  62-2115B C is from Be Mine, a pink space age carrier, by (Pink Lenox X Celebration Song), a two tone lavender seedling that had poor form and substance and no longer exists.  I’ll never know if I don’t try.


This one blooms seven large flowers on fairly short stalks, and its substance is good.
