Blooming for the 1st time,
Less than 1 year old.
34" scape, 4" flower (expect size to increase)
6 branches, 24+ buds
Nice sturdy plant foliage that could double as border grass
Rust resistant
Expect that it may double on next bloom cycle.

Parentage unknown (pod parent is an old tough noid tet)
Thumb of 2015-07-16/Xenacrockett/5450be

Will cross this with my other rust resistant seedlings

Pat - Congratulations on your new seedling!!! Very pretty bloom and if it continues to show rust resistance in the Fall (which is the worst time of all for rust spores), then you should definitely name and register that wonderful plant! And it will certainly be a great parent plant with all the branching and buds! Very impressive!!!

I am working on creating some seedlings with good rust resistance, too! So I can fully appreciate what you have created with your new seedling! Thumbs up Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Update on bud count: 36

Unfortunately this seedling bloomed after hybridizing season, so I've frozen pollen to use next year.
