sibs and parents

somewhere around here the other parent lurks…  who knows it might even be found before the post is done.   the cross is 13-011 12-0727-003 Monster x Lavender Branch ) x Sky Captain.  and now that both parents have been found we can do just that.  Sky Captain is a late blooming flower.  it is a tall sturdy plant.  it reaches to just under the 4 foot fence.  normal height is 50 inches, so this year it is a touch shorter than normal.  the other parent is an orange seedling that is a strong plant, a good match for Sky Captain, just not quite as big and still close enough if we are trying to keep the size.  three seedlings came out of this cross.  they are close in plant size, a touch smaller ( so far ) in bloom size.  and the seedlings come in three colors, orange, red, and a peachy poly chrome.  we can work on stretching these flowers out of their tight round form and into a more open star. five images.  you can’t make all the changes at once and we are excited about the orange being in the mix.  Sky Captain,  the seedling half of the cross Monster x Lavender Branch followed be the three new seedlings.

    the water drops do add another element to the pics. I am excited because the children are taking the plant form and late bloom season of Sky Captain. They are also opening us a tiny bit from the circular bloom shape and the peach poly chrome looks to have lost the eye. and there is three separate color directions to cross with. all good.
