In Sept & Oct of 06, Robin posted photos of Wearing Rubies X
Matrix seedlings pretty similar.
As far as goals, well. I have a seedling from Bonus Mama X Rip
that, I swear, bloomed at about 4 feet last spring with 5 branches
and at least 14 nicely formed, red mud-colored blooms. The foliage
is robust and stayed nice and was still almost 3 feet tall when killing
frost came, but no rebloom. This one has a date with it and
Mountain Sunrise. Will see what else pops out in spring.
I still mourn a seedling from Double Agent X Memoirs that was
bright white over bright red with yellow edges and beard. As with
Memoirs, it only lived a couple of years here. That's a color
I'd love to get back. It didn't just draw the eye, it yanked
Basically, I'm just trying to get new colors and patterns that will
stay healthy and rebloom here early enough. If some of the Starring
seedlings aren't too short, I may try that.
