More snow covering the plants in the garden. I need to be given some cheer so I will think about SDBs.

I've been fascinated with reverse amoenas since the first time I saw one and have done a bunch of crosses involving them. Probably too many, really, as most were either identical or even inferior to the parents. But, there are some that are interesting to keep, at least for awhile.

Don't remember which forum it was on, but someone recently posted a comment to the effect that 'There are too many reverse blue amoenas on the market, we don't need any more'. I don't care, I love everything about each of these last three seedlings and hope at least one of them makes it to introduction in the not too distant future:

It would be like saying that there are too many blues. Height, time of bloom etc can be different. If you combine early & late (for example) you would have the color throughout the season.

They're all beautiful Kent. I particularly like #1 and #4 -- I like the yellow tucked under the standards. Green Grin!
