A few pretties today

lisa_3(5)June 12, 2012

I have fat buds on a few flowers ready to go any day. But a few nice stand outs today. The first two are seedlings I bought. One I have permission to register (yellow eyed) and have been debating whether or not to do so, the other I got from Jaime Gossard and was hybridized by a friend of his that had passed away-but I can't remember who he said she was or I would give her credit. I call it Butterfly Illusion in my yard. The last one is one I think grows prettier every year.

I really like that first seedling. Dena Marie's Sister is a beautiful color and looks like it must be a great bloomer.

I think the first seedling is very pretty. It kind of reminds me of LEE PICKLES. Is Butterfly Illusion the second seedling? Could Gossard's friend be Shirley Farmer? Your Dena Marie's Sister looks great. Mine got hit hard by the thrips and never recovered. I need to treat it earlier next year.

Debra-the first seedling is sometimes darker on the eye and edge and a much larger bloom than Lee Pickles, it just doesn't have a very high bud count.
Yes the second seedling I just call Butterfly Illusion to give it a 'garden name' and it could be Shirley Farmer-I've had it for about 5-6 years so it would have to be someone who died before that because he told me she had died before it was registered. I just don't remember a name.
