Hazel if you do plant them now, I would only do it if you have a grow light setup in a room that will stay warm throughout winter as the seedling probably won't get big enough to survive before winter. I'm not completely sure how your climate is but it may also be too warm right now to get good germination, depending on your plans. I put Anthony's seeds right in the freezer for a planned January planting.

While seeds planted later certainly will not produce the heft of earlier planted ones, winter hardiness shouldn't be an issue.

True. But I have two issues with planting seeds so late in the season.

1. Soil germination temperature is difficult to keep cool enough. Many seeds in any given seed lot may not even sprout until Fall, when temperatures actually do cool back down. This often results in a mixed bag of seedlings, age wise, with (in some cases) some seedlings having only a cotyledon by early November.

2. Summer temperatures are just too hot and humid to acclimate young seedlings successfully without difficulty. It's just plain darn tough on them. Seeds planted around June 1st would be up by July 1st and have a true leaf by July 15th or a little after. The hottest, most humid time of the year. And the last thing you want is botrytis on that first true leaf! It's hard to spray apply copper based fungicide under the leaves of these little ones and besides, they don't like it either.

But as far as winter hardiness of little ones, as long as they have a single well developed true leaf they're ok to go. I have buried pots of them over winter with only one true leaf without a problem.

I have missed placed the envelopes but marked them and the containers I winter sowed the seeds in.
1 - 5 - 6 -7 have sprouted Hurray!
As soon as I match name to number I will know what they are.

Good to see that #5 has germinated. This type of aurelian cross has become very popular.

Why?
1. It looks kind of cool due to stark contrast with the tepals.

2. One can study this aspect of the genetics of crosses of this type. I'm in this camp, but I don't do blackhearts. I do like penciling though.

Yes, Yes. I mean beyond that-- is it relevant down the road in subsequent crossings to something like more uniform color release and so on. Edit: I'll keep my right ear open for later, so we stay on topic here.
