Playing with historics

Chris, that first seedling (the upper photo) from RAMESES pollen may have
more value than you realize.  You note the increased width and the more
expressed color than in the papa, but what you may not realize is that in
one step you have jumped over about ten generations of development.

Hopefully, in that jump you did not lose the toughness and resiliencey of
that profoundly important historic.  RAMESES is particularly prominant in
the ancestry of pinks, blends, browns, and quite likely, SA's as well.
Laced edges are another matter that appear in those heavy to Rameses

That is not to say that Rameses carries any of the genetic basis for pink,
SA or lace, but it may hold other surprises for the modern garden.  That
wider, colorful seedling selfed or crossed with some tender, difficult but
spectacular modern variety might yield some serious and significant advances
in "growability."  Linda Mann would be a likely one to jump at a chance to
try breeding with it in her (and my) difficult climates and soils.
