Hi guys!

I am trying to think of some garden names for a few seedlings I have and would welcome any suggestions, please.

First one is this little Summertime Blues seedling. A small cool purple flower 3.5in:

Next is Focus on Fusion x Green Treat. 2.75in flower.

Number three is a Purple Pinwheel seedling. Small flower, around 3 inch, faint blue eyezone.

Fourth one is a large flower, about 7 inch, possibly Stargate Portal as pod parent, very rich grape purple.

And finally Carolina Bound x Smoke Scream. Pink, cream bitone (looks like a larger version of 'Pony') About 5 inch. Photo taken last year, this year it is more of a soft creamy pink

Nikki, the first one looks like it has a silver cast to it... Very pretty Smiling
Though they are all lovely, the big purple one is my favorite of the bunch- I like spiders! Well, maybe the bi-tone is... Love those too Lovey dubby

Um, names? Well, yeah... Um...

A Peahen's Fantasy for the spider...

Silver Lining for the bitone...

Diana,

Thank you for your comments. Peahen's Fantasy it is for the spider! Yes, the first one does have a silvery cast to it, it is a really lovely colour. Hoping that next year that one and Aquamarine flower at the same time as I don't seem to be having any luck with frozen pollen and would like to try to cross them as they are both cool toned.

Nikki, glad to help : )
I've got two I don't think I need help naming...
Let me introduce Garbage Heap and Compost Bin... The red one never opens beyond what you see and the dark red is consistently half open. The red one has a second scape coming out of the same fan... Hope it improves as it can't get any worse!
