HARVEST OF MEMORIES X LAURA JEAN, dug and put in sunporch.
I've been waiting on this one since November!
Not a modern bloom, but at least it got the large bloom size from LAURA
JEAN. That and height were the two things I was after, along with
ferocious health of both parents. Maiden bloom, several sibs haven't
bloomed yet. Main stalk was frozen out before I dug the plant - this is
the basal branch.
Another old style, but some good genes - height, bloom size, &
tangerine, with that good health. This is a good bloom size from
HARVEST OF MEMORIES, for those of you who haven't tried to work with it.
Hoping at least one from this cross will everbloom.
