<<Suky is SO pollen fertile, it may be very useful to reblooming
To take this a step further, I will add a small chunk of information, which
is extremely limited and may be totally worthless!
Several years ago, I made a cross with Another Journey X Double
Vision. DV gave me 3 blooms total. Then it died. The cross
produced 23 seed of which 4 grew to maturity. This spring was the first
time I'd seen bloom on any of them. One lost it's bloom stalk early
but 3 bloomed.
One was a lovely mahogany self, but my surprise came when 2 remaining
seedlings were plicata, one a plain plicata but other is different to
my eyes. . . with tiny dots of color. Don't think there is
any chance it's a luminata, but I do think it would be
termed 'fancy.' Sorry, no picture of the plicatas.
At first I was saying how can this be, my red seedling is not a
plicata. Then I remembered that Violet Miracle, by way of Her Royal
Highness, is a part of it's ancestry.
