You are right - no increase, and no luck setting pods, & no pollen.

I didn't try very hard tho, because I couldn't figure out what to cross
it with.  The hafts were a lot messier than a lot of what is available,
and I was assuming there would be opportunities for crosses another year

Siblings are not producing any increase either, & some are on their
second summer.

At the time this bloomed, I still wasn't scratching surfaces to see
where the pigments were.  Noticed the scrapes in the photo when I pulled
it up a few days ago.  I don't think you had entirely convinced me by
last spring that "classic umbrata"  (light rims matching standards) is
the same genetic pattern as layered color <without> the light rims.  I'm
still not 100% convinced, but a lot closer <g>.  Will have to see it
with my own crosses. And will be sure to scratch a lot of petals and
look at both top and back sides of the falls next spring.

< I think you mentioned that this seedling bloomed without increase.  I
see the tag on it. .. Tell Muhlestein used to say one of the ways to
give bloom-outs as much time as possible to increase was to set a pod.
