Congratulations. I never get a seedling to bloom that early, even if I don't prune it.

Thanks you all! I don't think I've stopped smiling. Our weather has been all over the place with many chilly cloudy/overcast days. Poor thing took almost three weeks to bloom. I love the color. It is so strikingly rich. My pictures don't really do it justice.

I thought my oldest blooming DR was going dormant until...she went crazy with buds on literally every branch. I hope they survive so I can post pics for you. I Almost fainted when I thought I saw seedpods (3-4 of them. False alarm:) All smiles over here though. So heres's one more pic.

Great seedlings and great flower on this one. Love the color being solid with a yellow throat.

Tracy,
What a beautiful plant, and in such a short time. I am going through all sorts of antics to achieve flowering within 12 months as you can see from my recent post. I hope I can get a result as good as yours!

Hi Tracy
Just a question did you see a photo of the mother plant and is the colour what you expected.
