RE: HYB: 08-11

Hi Bruce


I’d be tempted to cross it with a dark with a very light beard such as Obsidian or Mountain Majesty. Alternatively you could try some of Paul Black’s dwarfs with a white beard such as Puddy Tat or Wish Upon A Star.


Have fun

This is the last of this years seedling selects, and unfortunately another where the flower is not remarkable. The thing that saved 

it from the trash pile is the beards.  They make a statement, noticeable fron 50 yards across the field. I have saved this for future

breeding, although I have no idea with what. I would like to have the basic flower coloration with the contrasting

beards, just with much better form. Any ideas? STARRING X MIDNIGHT OIL
