Thanks Diana. I'm not sure it was exactly what Boyd asked to see.
What were some of your favorite crosses with Vertical Horizon, Boyd?

Those look like some really good crosses! I've never seen Asheville Sunlit Rainbow, very nice. Should be fun to see what will come out of Jerry Hyatt with VH. Curt has produced a lot of really interesting cultivars from the Jerry Hyatt lines. Look forward to seeing images of your seedlings. Thumbs up
