This is the first bloom for this seedling. It is an EMO and these pictures were taken before 6:30 this morning.

Somewhat Awesome X God Save The Queen

Nice! Being a first ever to bloom as a seedling, don't be surprised if the blooms change somewhat. My guess is that the ruffles will get more pronounced with age. Lovely! Thumbs up

A bit surprising that it doesn't have more teeth, but very nice!

Dennis, I noticed that some with teeth will develop them with more maturity in my garden.

Thank you, everyone. I like the color a lot.

Gerry, do you hybridize teeth a lot? I'm curious, how dominant of a trait it is in your experience (when crossing toothed with non-toothed)?

Dennis, I just started hybridizing four years ago, and I do not have many results for teeth.

I just took these pictures of the first bloom, and what a change!

In terms of RGB, the blue component has dropped roughly 30%. Definitely quite a significant hue change, and without a bad faded look-- It looks good!

Thank you, everyone for the support. This feeling is great!

I have several seedlings that will be blooming for the first time yet this summer. They have very small buds at this time, but growing every day.

That is a splendid bloom and so unlike its parents in a good way.
