Thumb of 2016-01-09/mkb136/a025aaSpelled the father wrong its a Monika single very heavy bloomer!! This is the first flower. Seedlings are fun but you have to be up for the long haul. They might take a year might take 2 or more but sure is fun to see what you get.

I wish but with the doubles and triples it takes a few days. Our weather has been in mid80's today were way cooler so that might slow down the process too.
