Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Danny, Were your seedpods on Party Plus a self or were they a cross. I guess I'll just keep trying maybe I'll luck out one time like you did!

I am assuming that Maguire's Party varieties are all siblings where they look so very similar..I think there are a few more also, do you have any others.

I wonder why they are all so difficult to set seeds. I have a Party Pooper that should bloom in the next few months and perhaps I will put papilio on it as this is the first time I have papilio pollen when Party Pooper is blooming, my Party Animal is all through blooming for this year though...

I am assuming that the Party varieties have papilio in their background, they actually say that one of them is a papilio hybrid on their website.

Your little red double is very nice. Maybe it will stay tiny, people love small flowered varieties, especially nice if it's a well formed double like yours!!
