A couple of years ago I brought home a stalk of Sharpshooter from
a show and was wandering around the yard, looking for something to
put pollen on. Not much left to choose from that late in the
and I wound up putting it on Blue Moonlight, reliable rebloomer for
long as I can remember, but never used for breeding.
I was pretty impressed this spring with the improvement in bloom
quality. Unfortunately, at least on maiden bloom, the stalk
branching and bud count were all BM. In more ways than one.
Yes, I'm now growing Sharpshooter.
