04R3, now open
Here's 04R3, just cut during the snowstorm
because 25 degrees is forecast for tonight. It's flower form is better
than its maiden bloom, which was on a dug plant first blooming indoors.
Yes, Loic, it's a TB. Its parentage is G95W2 (Holy Night x Sweeter
Than Wine) X bee. The bee must have come straight from a strongly
aphylla variety, because neither Holy Night nor Sweeter Than Wine, though
nicely branched, has this kind of branching. The flower may appear to be
blue-violet on some monitors, but is actually just on the red
Even though its flower form isn't the latest
style, I'm thinking of introducing it for people who might want to get
its branching and vigor into rebloom. It's a cousin of 'Haunting' and
will probably bloom earlier at higher elevations, as 'Haunting' does.
