{Disarmed} HYB: Wearing Rubies seedling

I have large numbers of Wearing Rubies seedlings, so I thought I'd share some shots over the next day or so.  WR grows quite well here.  It has never rotted and has increased well.  The form is fairly variable - sometimes quite wide, and other times just average.  By far, most of the seedlings are various shades of Burgundy, but I am going to post some of the variations I saw.  It is an easy parent, very pod and pollen fertile here.  I used it primarily on rebloomers that rebloom in my area, and it shows, but if crossed to better parents of different colors, I would expect some very interesting colors to result.
The first is Wearing Rubies X Pink Attraction on its maiden bloom
The second is Wearing Rubies X Balderdash.
A fair demonstration of the value of choosing better parents :  )

but the second won't rebloom here, and the first may be a path to that end- so it'll be the one that gets worked a bit more
