Well, I currently have 3 older seedlings of this cross, but only 1 bloomed this year. The seeds I had left were left out 2 years ago, after having been soaked and put in the refrigerator, and they dried out again and got moldly. I soaked them again last fall and put them in the fridge. They germinated, and now I have a whole bunch of seedling from this cross that need put in the ground. This is a cross between Fogbound x Meteor Margaret.

Lovely color, Marilyn. Nice cool tones with the warm beard color on the edges of the standards and the shoulders of the falls. Good job!

One branch, 3 buds total. I am waiting to see how it does next year. I just do this for the fun of it. Smiling

Hi Marilyn;
There's a lot to look at in this seedling! All the pink edges on the standards are very attractive, I find and the mauve bases and midribs on the standards make a great contrast with the red-orange beards. The reverse pattern with pink in the mix is really pretty.

That's a pretty seedling. I like the bright beard contrasting with the muted colours.
