This is a seedling. (2 photos here - same
seedling, different flower, different time of day) It has a tailored/older
look to it, but I am quite pleased with the red tones I see in it.
Nothing to be introduced of course, but I am using it as a parent.
The texture on the falls are velvety - and I really
like that too. Because of the velvety texture - - the light plays on it
and can at times give it a near maroon-black velvet look to it as well. The
substance is good, it doesn't fade, the branching is decent, it's nice and tall,
and (I don't recall nor did I make note of how many buds it has due to
it being first year - - but if memory serves me right) - - it has 6-8
During certain times of the day - - it looks redder
than other times when an orange tint seems to shine through. Other times,
it looks much deeper/darker in color.
The standards are more silky, and so the color on
them remain the same throughout the day.
I don't know if the color will stay true. I
hope so, but one of it's siblings in it's first year bloomed more lt.
pink, then the following year it bloomed more lt.apricot in color. Even though
it remained in the same place.
I've moved my seedlings this past fall to
another location. I'm anxious to see what they will look like come spring.
