I love the hot colors, and uf spidery types too. I have been trying to only buy things that will work for my hybridizing goals of tall, well branched, toothy, rebloom and hot colors. Yet somehow other pretty faces inevitably manage to get here
. I have been a lot better about it the past few years because I am out of room. Price has a lot to do with it as well. I have been drooling over Barbra Mandrell since she came out. There was no way I was forking over the big dollars for her then. Finally I got her on the LA this winter for less than 30 bucks.
There was much rejoycing (sp?) here that day.
When I first started out any old pretty face that was cheap was welcome in the garden. Now many of those, which are still quite lovely, have been removed from the garden to make room. My friends, employer and others have reaped the benefits of this.
