Gerry - Both of your lavenders out of Jag are pretty, and I like both patterns it produced.

Dennis - Don't you love the mysteries of hybridizing ?I'm amazed that crossing two reds gave you a lavender applique. I like the color, pattern and shape.

I've loved this seedling since it first bloomed in the late season last year. But now I'm even more excited about it now that it has six-way branching and 40 buds. I knew it had at least 24 buds a couple weeks ago, but then after getting two inches of rain last week, it opened up all kinds of buds on the lowest branch.

August Frost x Winter's Angel - Dormant late bloomer with 7 inch blooms on 37 inch scapes.

It is so beautiful, Debra! And with such impressive stats too! How long do you observe a seedling before registration?

Karen - Most of the ones I've registered, I've observed for a long time. I don't register any until I have at least 16 fans, figuring the next year I would offer one for sale, I would want at least 20 fans. I registered Sangria with Mia after just four years because it was such a fast multiplier. Dearest Valentine, my avatar, was registered seven years after it first bloomed, even though I'd had people trying to buy it for four years. Zuzu's Treasure, which I registered this year, took eight years to get to 20 fans. I'm registering one later this year that took nine. Of course, they were growing in part shade some of those years, which slowed down the process. I usually know within three years whether a seedling deserves to be registered at some point. If a seedling can't multiply well, I won't register it, no matter how pretty it is, or how many buds it has. It's taken me years to figure out, the more you divide them, the more they multiply. I guess I'm a slow learner that way. LOL

Here's to the B-team. I'm blessed to have a lot of beautiful, beautiful seedlings. I'll get back to them some other time.

I promise I won't do this often, but I wanted to spend at least one post on the ones people generally won't post here, just in case those of you who don't hybridize think they all come out pretty as rainbows and smell like cotton candy or pot roast. There are a lot of these along the way. I do have better examples, but these are the ones that have bloomed the last five days.

Alien Corsage x Bohemian Rhapsody -- "I know, I'll put AC's cool applique thoat into BR's nice color." All six siblings a more unpleasant color than the next. There best quality is that most of them can't open far enough to see a giant 8" bloom in that color.

Or you want to work on your yellows and oranges so you cross Creamsicle Cool with Boss of the Applesauce and two and a half years later you realize you were beat by a bee.

Debra, thanks very much for sharing your experience! 8-9 years is a long time, but having grown seedlings for 4 years, I now understand that such time frame is as realistic as it gets. It is a painstakingly slow process. Anyway, I hope the above seedling is a fast increaser.

Tim, likewise here! it's either a great day or a crappy day in the seedlings garden. So sorry the bee got to your Creamsicle Cool with Boss of the Applesauce cross! At least you have bees in your garden. No honey bees visit my garden this year. Last year there was numerous bees buzzing about the clover blooms in my lawn. This year, very little activity.

Tim - Hybridizing normally yields a lot of bad to mediocre results. Since most of us just post our good seedlings, your post is a nice reality check.

As I was live heading last night, the bloom looked less melon and more pink.

I love the ruffles on this one.

Late diploid seedling. This is an old seedling of mine that's several generations out of Dr. Stout's Autumn King.

Thank You! Tim for reminding us all that often our best laid plans don't come close to working out the way we expect.

I've had several seedlings bloom this year and so far the FFEs have been a major disappointment. I won't post pictures not because they are pretty plain but because they are misshapen, thrip-riddled & speckled from thunderstorms. But that's most of my blooms this year. Angry

But I did get one seedling to bloom this year that I quite like. It had exactly 1 bud but the plant is so tiny I don't know how it even put up a scape.
The pic is on my phone so I'll have to add it a bit later.

Cross is Buffy x Holly Hill Tangelo. I'm sure the flower size will go down next year. But I like the feathered eye and the color from HHT.

Here are my seedlings so far this year...

2nd year for this one, which came from Earlybird Cardinal and Starmans Quest. It is a bit shorter this year but still has great color and form
Thumb of 2020-07-06/mom2cjemma/99be19
Thumb of 2020-07-06/mom2cjemma/1ad873

This is my third year for this one. It is cute and blooms earlier than its Parent Earlybird Cardinal.
Thumb of 2020-07-06/mom2cjemma/129f5a

These are all siblings out of Regal Air and Starman's Quest. Some are more redish and become tawny as the day goes on and others are a deeper burgundy with some fading during the day. One is like Regal Air where it is developing a 3rd set of blooms further down the scape. They are blooming pretty much in line with Regal Air.

Tim,

I don't know what you're talking about....lol. I have a dog trophy in the yard just to prove that ugly rules! A trophy from a chatroom many years ago. Please note....it is my only award. Rolling on the floor laughing


Thumb of 2020-07-06/Ahead/756ec1

There would be some who would say this next one would qualify, but this is only it's first bloom, and I see some potential.


Thumb of 2020-07-06/Ahead/6aebb3

Then there is a 40 X 7 seedling which also bloomed for the first time today. I have already given it a garden name.


Thumb of 2020-07-06/Ahead/bfd269

My one true winner also bloomed for the first time today, and I was well pleased.
