This cross was 'My Funny Valentine' X 'Gene's Little Secret,' and was to produce an AB (OGB). Since 'Gene's Little Secret' is in dispute as to having any aril blood, this would be OGB- at best. Several of the 40 seedlings have been contributed to the garbage can, but I have kept a few.....though these may go, too. Here is seedling #1.....17".
Elm, I have bloomed hundreds of seedlings from both the real 'Gene's Little Secret' and the imposter. I hate to say this, but all five of the pictures you posted show form and pattern characteristic of the imposter's offspring. Number 1 is definitely a keeper, though!
Was really hoping that your GLS would turn out to be the real thing.
