repotted seedlings

hippifan(8)November 29, 2011


I repotted my seedlings last saturday. Here they are. They look healthy, don't they?

This one has 7 leaves!

They are 8 months. I'm proud on it! They are crossing Appleblossom ÃÂ (I think) Desire.

Is this Desire? And if not, wich one is it then?

Thank you for identify!

They look great!! Do you grow them inside?? What size pot were they in, how many/pot, etc! Looks like the bigger one might bloom for you this spring!

Wow!! You should be really proud of yourself, they look great!! And look at those leaves will you!! I can't really tell if your picture is Desire or not, the lighting is a little dark,(Off hand it looks like Red Lion, but you'd know if it was red or not) but whatever it is, with Apple Blossom, they should be stunning!! I have some seedlings of Apple Blossom x Lady Jane..but they aren't nearly as vigorous as yours. Here is my Desire see it you think that is what you had. Desire has a very noticible lavender midrib which was on all of my flowers..I think it shows in the pictures..hope this helps you ID your flower!

Thank you for all enthousiastic replies. I didn't know they were so good actually.

I just sowed them in february, they showed their first leaf in march, after some months I repotted them each in a pot, so 1 per pot, and they were outside by a wall at the south. And in oktober I replaced them inside. Actually that's all.

I think it isn't Desire then. Can you name some more orange ones. Then I can look them up here:

Here is a link that might be useful:

Perhaps it is Orange Sovereign? It is a very vigorous grower.

Hmmm, when I have a better look at the second picture of Donna, perhaps it is Desire.

It might also be Naranja, another very lovely orange..but, what ever it is, with Apple Blossom you will definitely be handing out cigars when the time comes...can't wait to see them...
