Thanks, Betty.  How much simpler it would be if all lovely flowers were mounted on good stalks!  What I haven't noted here before is that 01S3 has a sibling, 01S2, that is a near-twin and ALSO is vertically challenged!  Talk about frustration!  So, those shortness genes in AURA LIGHT really have to be reckoned with.  On the other hand, I have just registered another sibling of these two, 01S15, as LEMON SQUEEZE.  It is 32" tall and very nicely proportioned (photo attached).  So, as my mentor of many years ago, Earl Roberts, said: "Plant every seed."
And, to be fair to WEARING RUBIES, I had forgotten that I dug a big, healthy rhizome of it to auction at our spring show.  So, I'd say it's increasing at an acceptable rate here.   --  Griff

Griff, I still love this seedling of yours.  Beautiful.  In fact I like all of these.   
I've finally bought WEARING RUBIES and it's looking good in the garden as a new plant.  Hope it does better for me than most of you have reported.  I'll just have to decide what to put it on, if it decides to bloom.  I have several possibilities. 
Thanks for the pictures.
