If you got the space to row the seedlings out any cross is worth trying, Jo Ann! Thumbs up
I'm at 120 different crosses and counting this year. In the end your special one might come from one cross with a large number of seedlings or a large number of crosses with only one or a few seedlings... Big Grin

Jo Ann,

The yellow color in Orange Tip and other yellow heuffs is recessive so if you use it in crosses to non-yellows the seedlings will be all green. I can show you a row of seedlings that I got from this sort of mating. I crossed it to reds, hoping to get a yellow base and red overlay, something that might approach a strong orange in a whole rosette. I've saved two of these seedlings and will self pollinate them to get back the recessives.

I HATE to cross heuffs as you have to pull apart the flower to remove the anthers. Semps are much easier to emasculate! That's why MOST of the time I just self-pollinate a special clone.
