These two flowers are Little Rainbow and Open Hearth. They both have their own glows. Little Rainbow is a two inch mixture of pink and yellow. Open Hearth is a 9 inch combination of red and yellow. One little and one very big, and both with a very flat open star shaped form.
Rainbow Afterglow is one of the children of this cross. A little bigger than
Little Rainbow both in bloom size and height, and actually taller than either parent.
Now the question is ‘was this a “safe” cross, like to like’ or something more adventurous ? And more importantly what beauties should I be looking to introduce to Rainbow Afterglow ? Oh – and can I remember this question this summer when the glow hits my eyes?
