Recent pics of some seedlings

opnjmprsJuly 9, 2014

Yesterday and today were fun days in the seedling beds. A few of my seedlings are showing some promise with nice tall scapes, large blooms, and good bud count.

Here's a Johnny Cash seedling 6.5" bloom and a few teeth on the sepals.

This one is a Last Lama kid, blooms are consitantly the same day after day, nice scape, 6.5" blooms

One of my favorites is this Red Friday seedling. I love this shade of pink with the lavender water mark. I have a better pic of this one taken today, don't have it on Photobucket yet,

Another Red Friday kid

Sibling to the one above, but with a better branched scape and higher bud count (25 buds) 6" bloom

They are all nice. I'll take the toothy red one. Love it. Good job.

Very pretty, all of them! If you don't mind sharing what are the crosses esp for the 5th and 6th pics?

nat4b.......That cross ( 5th and 6th) was Red Friday X Randy Stephens. Red Friday has not been an easy pod parent for me. I did manage to get 2 pods set to Randy Stephens, and those pods didn't produce many seeds either. Now I don't even try to set pods on RF, just too frustrating for me. I do use RF's pollen though.

Tim, I should post a pic of the bed of over 600 seedlings I'm about to burn down. I've had far more losers than winners. I think I'm keeping maybe 6-7 seedlings out of that particular bed, but I do enjoy making my crosses, and occasionally something shows up worth keeping.

Thanks for your answer about the cross, Linda! And the comments on Red Friday. It's not my favorite DL because it is short and looks kinda like a piece of cloth after too many washings. I thought it gave teeth but just googled and Randy Stephens is a toothy flower itself.
I thought about using RF for some crosses but only tried with Chance Encounter last year.
Again, your seedlings from RF are gorgeous!

You have some beautiful seedlings. I especially like second one and the Red Friday with teeth.
