HYB: TB: Rebloom seedling

Here is one of my reblooming seedlings from Mariposa Skies X Pacific Belle.  I love the shade of blue, and its really more ruffled than the picture shows.  Its fault is that it has short stalks.  I have saved its pollen to put on Yaquina Blue to try to correct that.  I hope I can get Yaquina Blue to bloom this year.  Like most Dykes winners, it doesn’t do well for me.  I also pollinated it with frozen pollen from Amethyst Winter that I harvested a month ago.  I have never before tried to freeze and use pollen.  It looked fresh and good after it had thawed.  I hope it takes.


I have a pod forming on one of its stalks by Autumn Thunder, which I think is very beautiful, but AT has short stalks also.


Is it better to freeze the pollen or just to keep it in the refrigerator?
