Hi, Katherine, Marilyn and Polly! Something that always amazes me are the vast differences that several people making the SAME CROSS will obtain. . . when I started hybridizing, I hesitated to "copy" other hybridizers' crosses, but this is silly. Chance lands where it will, after all! I'm especially anxious to see the kids from Fogbound X 0768B: Crowned Heads x 0548L (Coeur d'Hiver X Aitken 00T70 (Tokatee Falls x Crowned Heads). 0768B Is a nice plant, solid and floriferous, plus VERY pod and pollen-fertile but doesn't quite have what it takes to be introduced for itself, since there are now so many reverse blues available. This seedling has bluer falls, so I'm trying to have some other seedlings with very white falls, but it sure is a long road. I have now also crossed 0768B with a brown over yellow seedling in a desperate attempt to have darker standards, though I may end up with plants that look muddy. Still, I could swing with something that's nearly black over yellow! Stay tuned!
