    You know that looks similar to my plant of calcareum from Ceuse, although maybe more gold right now. Ceuse is one of my favorite calcareums.

    It's too bad the calcareums only bloom rarely as it would be good to have more of that germplasm in our semps. It tends to make nice compact plants with good weather resistance, perhaps because it has to withstand more Mediterranean conditions in its native France.

    Funny story on 'Flasher'. Helen was a bit of a prude and wouldn't sell my 'Devil's Advocate' because of Satan. Luckily she didn't know what flasher referred to so that went on the market. It was the first one that had bright red color for me. It is from a seedling of Ed Skrocki's, his #51, that had very bright color but was a wretched plant

    I know Ed Skrocki almost split a gut laughing at the name, knowing full well that Helen didn't!

  • Volkmar Schara said:I don't give the parents anymore for several reasons. The mother is always exactly determined - with the father I cannot be sure! I work in the last years mostly with parents who have not been named yet. Most of the seedings are from very new plants that are still in the trial stage. The plants are always close together and therefore from the group will also be the fathers! However, many plants then fail to make the introduction and are discarded again - so naming the mother doesn't make much sense. Black Tears comes from a seeding of Sweet Little Tears - hence the name - I would also be very interested in the father. From the whole sowing only this seedling was kept! Really a pity, I expected more from Sweet Little Tears - one of my favorite varieties! I hope I could help you a little bit.
    Kind regards Volkmar
  • Not sure if this is just a coincidence, this is not even my first year, I've only had this for 3 or 4 months, and it already has 1 pup.
  • 'Dakona' was sent to Chris Hansen by someone in Russia. The background of this semp is not known at this time.
