Hi Everyone! Sorry for not posting...been down in Florida for the first time in my life (Orlando) Spectacularly beautiful!

Came home and did my walk about to see what all was going on that I missed with my plummies. I found 3 seed pods! One on a Slaughter pink and 2 on my DeLuna Madre! Really excited about that because she is our best grower, bloomer, rust resistant , and does the best in winter. Should be a great Mother! I I'll post up some pix of the seed pods for those that aren't sure what to look for...

Made this picture of one of my seedlings that bloomed! Used HDR and compositing to dither the background...early morning sun coming up behind her. Some would call this a "Common White" I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

This is a seedling we call "Lemoncello". The main plant was almost 10' tall last year, so we had to cut it up before the freezes last year. This is bloom is one of two 6 foot cuttings we took, so we are excited to see a cutting this large blooming.
Beautiful rich yellow with very pointed petals! Sweet smell!

Lovely blooms both, but be careful when naming your seedlings. There already is a Limoncello in the process of being registered, and there is a Palomar which is both awfully close to your names.

If you ever have a cutting of that 'Lemoncello' I'd be interested in one. Yellow is my favorite.

Thanks Hetty! Yes, I understand the names, I google any name that i use...the Palomar I think is different than the Paloma and i will never try to register that one. There is a Limoncello, which could be mis-spelled, but Debbi named this one and likes it...so I agree I would have to do something to register this one and I think it is unique enough to try...good advice.

The cutting Lemoncello is on has 12 tips, so I should be able to get one to you the end of the season..maybe we can trade for a Vera Cruz? Whistling
