Most of the cross had good height and good form.  The branching is bad on all.  One could be considered blue, very pale with a red beard.  Didn't get picture of it but did get a take with my good bi-tone blue from Decadence. 
In 2006 I made several pink crosses with hope of improving the pink rebloom lines.  Both Treasured and Lotus Land were crossed by Pink Attraction.  All of these seedlings were very slow to grow and slow to bloom.  Seedlings all around them did well so I can't bloom the garden.   One cross from a Memphis Miss seedling did a little better but not much.  (this one is inbreeding since MM is also from Pink Attraction.)  Most of the pink crosses were weak. 
<<did you get any height from the cross? >>
Not sure what you're seeing as squished.  They aren't fully domed, but they aren't open either and they're held well.  Didn't relax beyond this point.

I don't know, but am starting to see several in that general color
class, so maybe we can create a market?


<Is there a market for this color? >

I like the look of the Treasured x Pink Attraction seedling - did you
get any height from the cross? Standards look a little squished - is
that just this bloom, or ?

TREASURED sure gives nice form to blooms.

Any other "hot" breeders out there any of you are hearing about? I know
some of you are in contact with the big time/award winning hybridizers &
hear rumors of super 'stud' breeders now and then. Let us know.
