Griff,

I hope you do decide to introduce it (or at least offer it for sale).   You can put me on the list.  I would sure love to try it with some of my lines! Branching and vigor are harder to come by than a pretty flower.

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 side.
 
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.  Your thoughts?  --  Griff
