I did this cross shooting for more intense PBF (purple based foliage) _expression_. The short row is made up of only the best seedlings for foliage color - all of the green or weakly colored siblings went to the compost pile.
Here are the six that are blooming right now. The top left one is Tall Bearded height. The rest are in the Border Bearded range.
