'Roasted Chestnuts' is a very happy plant. Good increaser and never any rotting problem. If they were all so easy! I self-pollinated a stalk last summer and have a nice pot of seedlings. Hope to get a bigger and even more intense one!

I can't take much for creating this one as it came from mixed seed that Erwin sent me. Several of the group were nice but this was the only one named.

I keep forgetting which one it was that was a lucky find!! So you have no idea on its parentage? That explains why it looks different! If I get my act together maybe I'll order some seed from Europe instead of plants and see what I get!! Thumbs up I tip my hat to you.

Patty,

would be great for me to make photos of this nice Sort. But it is not common in Germany. As I assess, nobody here has this. Same with many sorts of American Hybridizers. There are only less of them in Germany. Especially sorts from Kevin are most wanted.
