a little alchemy

there is time for a few more crosses.  whether or not there is room for a few more seeds is a much more serious question that will be answered next spring.  back to the cross question.  the seedling is a mostly white flower.  it is parentage involves two generations of purple flowers crossed into a whitish flower where the white overpowers the purple.  will it happen again if these two are combined ?  predicting what the genetics will do is a bit like alchemy.  there is still too much unknown.  the only way to find out is to try.  and in the trying is all the fun.

      Ha ! Every now and then a few do explode when they get too much water. The scape bursts and breaks off. Fortunately this one and most of them do not explode.
      Thanks !
