What has been the story on this seedling?
Did it grow well? Are you going to introduce it? If it has survived, are you
interested in guesting it for observation and exposure?
It is a nice example (by picture at least)
of an AB from the McAlister breeding and I would like to have an opportunity to
observe it in our garden if that is possible. It might fit in very well with
some of the future introductions that Sharon
is considering in the next couple years.

Out of McAllister's AT LAST, presumably with LUELLA DEE as the pod
I have six seedlings from the cross and this is
one of two that didn't bloom
last year. So far I've liked them all.
If nothing happens I'll get to see
the last one bloom and all of those last year have
stalks again. Overall,
these are the best AB seedlings I've grown.
The plants seem sturdy so far.
I've had other blooms that were as good, but the
plants themselves have been
a trial of my patience.
