  • Subject: HYB: For PBF

I was hoping with this cross to correct the faults of "PBF/RM" - using ASTRA GIRL to get the flower size reduced and increase branching and budcount - while keeping the nice purple foliage traits of "PBF/RM".

Looks like it was at least partially successful, but looks like there's still a tendency for the stalks to snake around. Maybe I should be choosing straighter/stiffer stalk [diploid] MTB's to incorporate into these lines.

Any suggestions?
