Re: Re: HYB: Maiden bloom


Hi Linda,

Yes, I was actually curious what it would look like!  Thanks for sharing!  :-)

Any chance spring bloom will be better? -- I mean, it's probably 99.999% sure not to be dark purple, but it might improve, right?

Thanks again!

Oh well...after 7 inches of rain cumulative for Mon/Tues. But I thought
you folks would be curious to see what color it turned out to be ;-)
Bloom was deformed before it opened (heat?), but it did seem to have
really good substance. Sure isn't dark purple tho!

The next one is another one from Harvest of Memories X Renown, showing
cream. This is the 6th one from the cross - "Homer-1" has been blooming
awhile, has a second stalk about to open, "Homer-2" is just starting to
show color (wretched form, short thing), no sign of stalks yet on 3, 4,
& 5. 1, 2, & 3 were first year germinants, 4 & 5 were 2nd year, and
this one is a 3rd year. First year rebloomers were white. 2nd year
rebloomers were yellow.

I can't remember for sure what colors the non-rebloomers were - mostly
white for first year, but I think there was at least one light yellow.
Pretty sure all the second years were some shade of yellow.

Bloom on 3rd years all got frozen this spring. So technically, this
cream colored one doesn't actually count as rebloom.
