You're welcome Daniel! I really like GREEN THROATED ROBIN. The color is amazing, and it makes tons of prolifs! This year it had 2 way branching, 10-12 buds, but that was about average for this season with the drought we've had. If I have one complaint, it's that the scapes are a little on the weak side. Blooms well above the foliage, and the foliage is a nice fountain shape. It is pod fertile, but I got less prolifs on the scape that set pods. Scapes without pods had 4-6 prolifs each. Definitely a keeper.

Love GTR. Tall and very green, and makes very green babies. Easily pod fertile and the pods are loaded with seeds. Is the grand parent of one of my best green seedlings, see below.
