Re: BB calico cat's pod parent Miss Nellie

Hello Barb,
Calico Cat looks a lot like it's pol parent BB-Miss Nellie :


(J. Burch, R. 1979) Sdlg. 38-2. BB, 27" (69 cm), E-M
S. greyed yellow (RHS 160C) blended with pale violet (84D); F. dark red-violet (71A) edged with light violet (80B); yellow-green (153D) beard. Child Star X Mexicali. Burch 1983, , Knowl 1990



with the higher part of the fall darker, it's very distinctive.

Of course, it has an incredibly stronger texture. And gives babies with wonderful shape (when it does get pregnant...)
Never got anything with its pollen, wanted to try this year again, but rain started today on its first day of opening.
In the background, must be IB-Brighten Up, a child of a Fringe Benefit's sib.
This bed no longer exists and i don't keep the olds maps, but it looks like its way of holding its falls.
Tried to pollinate it so many times in vain, i no longer try.
An easier to pollinate very bright orange with much better texture is BB-Frizzy Lizzy, with also a much better shape.
Cheers to you too,

So that's what Calico Cat looks like. I think mine is misnamed! Mine is a broken color, so I thought it was Maria Tormena instead, but it doesn't look like Judy's.  Sigh.
What is that red and yellow one blooming in the background? That's real bright!
Cheers, Barb in SW Missouri
