Colleen ,


I was also thinking very 80's on this seedling , It has 7 buds & show bench branched stalks , but that is all it has . It will probably end up in the back of the yard , just so my wife can look at it every spring . Now for your orange seedling , I am a very tough critic on my TB seedlings , if it does not have at least 7 buds & super branching , it gets the shovel almost immediately . (unless it is a totaly unique looking) . Since your orange seedling blooms before most others , then that's a plus .  I like the clarity of the color & the form is very nice . so as long as your dislike for the lack of straightness in the stalk does not really effect the performance of the clump . I say . release .

Your right, nice colours, but does look rather 80ish.
The question, is it somehow better or different than what's already out
there. Does it rebloom, bloom very early, very late, have a very high
bud count, colour break. I'm considering releasing this one next year.
The main thing that sets this one apart from other oranges, is that it
flowers well before another bright orange that I know. Good bud count,
grows and flowers well but stems not a straight as I would like. I'd
appreciate your comments
