You bet! It inspired me to abandon work on the various disaster
recovery projects and spend some time potting up this year's germinants
and repotting last years. Looking for sibs and other seedlings from EC.
Wonder what those EC X BURST kids will look like...

And yes, it does shout SHARPSHOOTER (or ROMANTIC EVENING) from across
the garden - nice rich velvety look from a distance. To be honest, I
was really surprised to see such a large bloom from this cross. Makes
me think EC may have few doses of those median (small flower) genes.
The large flowers on EC is what prompted me to try the cross, so it's
nice to see those genes get passed along.

SS is miniaturized here, so hard to evaluate potential. But it has
survived (barely) in the garden - the last crop of storeboughts that
were planted out in the ground rather than in pots.

Chuck, for what it's worth, the two sibs from this cross that have tried
to bloom previously (first year germinants), were very early,
excessively frost sensitive.

<Nice to have an amoena blooming in the summer, eh? Looks like it got a
lot of Sharpshooter's genes. -- Griff>
