Remember this?

presenting mom, Dorthea and dad, #713A (Bergfeuer x SuperSpot, Volker hyb.)

Below are five sibling seedlings that recently bloomed.

Quite a range of shapes/ curly/straight/ no tendrils but they are all pink!

Let's hear it for PINK!!! LOL!

A few of them are very dark pink, but I was actually shooting for a dark, dark pink Dorthea seedling!

Those are great looking babies, even if they aren't what you were hoping for.

Thanks, PA- I like the one that looks like it's banking & coming in for a landing! ;-)

That Dorthea has an absolutely beautiful pink! I'd of been content with that one if it were my first and only! There are 2 in there that are pretty dark pink with long whiskers, which characteristics do you hope to have from

Lovely babies! You surely are pleased with yourself!- Sandy

Isn't it interesting how sibling brugs can be so different? I have 5 of your seedlings of Dorthea X Esmeraldas X Mountain Magic growing so far- only 2 have bloomed- the one that I posted so far is a medium pink, FABULOUS fragrance of orange blossoms, disease and pest resistant. The next one is a smaller dark pink. Can't wait to see what the rest will turn out to be!
Thanks for sharing! Great Work!

The 2nd pix looks like it has dad's shape. All beautiful though!

It won't let me enlarge, but I really like the color on the first seedling.

Thanks for the comments- and I'm sorry that the thumbnails won's open, guess it back to the huge photos! I thought photobucket was going to work for me. This is my only complaint about posting photos on the GW, so I have been posting my photos on Facebook and on Cubits.
Good luck Kasha with the rest of your seedlings.
I was shooting for a darker pink Dorthea. Dorthea's tendrils are over 4" long and I love them.
