They're all beautiful, Brad. It is difficult to choose something specific. Most of all I liked the yellow. In my last year's repost of your photos - most likes won 12-12C, in second place-12-12A

Of course I am partial to the pinks and burgundy so my votes would go to 12-12 A, C, G, I and K.
B is beautiful in color, ruffles and form but just not my favorite.
That being said, the Unconditional Love crosses are by far the best!!!

I think you can guess my favorites but I want A, adore B, E, G, (which is what I may have to do to ever get them, if you catch my meaning...!!) have a think for F and have a soft spot for J because it reminds me of a cross of two of my Blyth dragons , Enter The Dragon and Dragon Dance.

Brad,
I'll jump in here real quick. 12-12 A&B need to be introduced. No questions asked! Just do it! I'm big on color, and they full that need well. Intro them and they will find a home in Indiana, if not maybe we can work something out to get the to Indiana as seedlings. Would like to work them into my seedlings lines!

All of these are just gorgeous. The only way I could pick my favorites was to put them in color groups.

C, D, I, and K: so hard to pick a favorite, I think it's C, because of the velvet look, then I change my mind.

J reminds me of Sirocco Mist, which is a absolute must have on my want list, so I need this one too. Smiling

I think these would look stunning planted together (if they had the same bloom time)

I don't think there's a bad one in that whole group of Smoke and Thunder X Class Ring cross. They're all amazing. I am lucky enough to have 12-12-A in my garden, and it has been a good grower and performer here. Love the variations in the coloring of each bloom. I lost my pictures of it, so I can't show you how it looks here.

This is the last group of seedlings from my garden for the year as you guys can tell it was a much better year for me then the previous 2 Crossing Fingers!
May 2019 will be fun again. I am undecided on this next group many of them looked good this year but were affected by the weather what do you guys think do any of them jump out at you ?

Serjio.. I'm glad to here they were liked Smiling

Debra.. To do that we need a name ? nodding any suggestions Smiling

Liz.. Im glad you like them and they definitely have some flash Smiling and hard to pick from for me every year I change my mind.

Hippie.. It's bright and you won't miss it when that one blooms.

Monty.. Thanks C is a ways out not much of it yet but A is getting closer.

Evelyn.. Thank You !

Tom.. If it does well for us in the Midwest would think it will do well anywhere but will find that out soon enough. I'm not sure if your as cold as home is but what a tough week we keep getting emails from the kids school being canceled -30 windchills and -8 actual temps Sad I knew winter would find us it always does just hoped it wouldn't be so brutal and glad there is plenty of snow cover this year.

Les.. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing I like Barry's Dragon's also we need to mix them together and see what interesting things pop up from that Smiling

Jane.. Pinks are my fav's too and I have some interesting ones in that group Crossing Fingers! they continue to grow well.

Teri.. Thank You and Welcome to the forum.

Cory.. Thanks !!A is getting closer still don't quite have enough 1 more year if it still looks good and will do something with that one Smiling Good to hear from you .

Barabra.. Love the groups and your right clumps of those would look good together I did that this year so hopefully some pictures in the spring of them in clumps together.

Rob.. You caught the streak on (B) Big Grin very distinctive when it 1st opens and then it fades but all in all a neat flower in the garden.

Jan.. Good to hear there doing well on the West Coast I'm looking forward to your report on them in the spring and to the others in the group that are growing a few of mine for test gardens Thank You ! I know garden space can be hard to come by as some of you are limited and I appreciate you guys making space for a few of mine so I can see how they look in different climates very interested to see how they grow in different parts of the country.
