My first seedling, from crossing in 2018 has finally showed up..

It is rather short, but maybe it will grow bigger next year.

Samurai Warrior X Cruise to Autumn

These shots are in variable light placements as it is in a pot and it is late afternoon. I had a doctor's appointment today, so I didn't have the time to check the garden before I left.

Thank you. It needs work. Hopefully a few more will bloom. I'm going in a different direction now since 2018. So much to learn. (Too bad I'm so old!) It was hot and windy today and the petals couldn't take it.

Daphne ~ Thank you. It was a first attempt as an amateur. It is too similar to others, which are far superior.

Congrats Evelyn on your first seedling Hurray!

Looks quite nice and it will be interesting to see what it's like in a year or two as it matures.

Joshua ~ Thank you. I have over 100 more that yet have to bloom. Already I can see that is is too close to the superior Mad World. If I were to want to do that cross again, I would have done it backwards:
Cruise to Autumn X Samurai Warrior

The reason being that the form is better on Cruise to Autumn. I do believe that the pod parent carries the form. It has the inferior form of Samurai Warrior. At the time I was unaware of Mad World.

Interesting, it took on most of it's characteristics from Cruise to Autumn. So often you'll find that the seedlings turn out looking a lot like one of the parents. Then out of nowhere one will be really different then either one.

But it's yours and it's cute! Let that sweetie grow up and make you a gorgeous clump. You can already tell he loves his garden mama. ❤️

Yay Evelyn! It's such a cute seedling!
And it's neat to see it really did pull traits from both parents. It will be interesting to see if the bloom changes at all. Some of my seedlings pigment and ruffling was more pronounced with some of the following blooms.
