Here, Mary, are two
seedlings from the cross, Mariposa Skies X Ethereal Dream.The first has brighter blue and better
contrast with the white standards.The second had two stalks, one fairly good one and one too short, but
they looked pretty in the garden.Another sibling of these, that didn’t bloom last year, is making a
huge clump with three inch wide leaves in its fans.I’m looking forward to seeing what
it looks like.

get enough of seedling photos, especially this time of year! Please post
any you have, even if they're not wonderful. I learn as much from
failures as from successes. Just, please, give the seedling # and parentage
with the photo. Additional info on vigor, bud count, branching, etc. is
my seeds sprouting got me this far, but it's kind of like watching paint
dry. Three more months to get through before Mulberry Echo starts the
post those photos!
