Todays Rebloom Duets

shive(6b TN)August 23, 2014

My own seedling, garden named Valentine Sweetheart, began reblooming today. It's out of Shores of Time and Rosy Rhino and has three reblooms scapes in all.

RED EDITION duo

Also in bloom today were JAY FARQUHAR, FINAL TOUCH, and HAPPY RETURNS.

What a nice seedling, are you going to register that one? It is so pretty. Red Edition is looking really good too.

OMgosh. What a great picture of your seedling. Look at that edge and the deep pink color. What will you classify it as? A late bloomer or other?....Red Edition ain't too shabby either. Is the edge actually white in person or more yellow?.......Maryl

Nancy - I am still evaluating the seedling. So far, it doesn't have enough buds to register (8 on the original bloom and the rebloom). I'll see what it can do when I move it to full sun. It's growing in part shade now.

Maryl - The seedling is a midseason rebloomer. Last year it rebloomed in August and September too. Red Edition does have a real white edge with some gold in high temps.

Both of those are extremely pretty. The 3 rebloom scapes on your seedling is a real sweet treat. Lots of pretty blooms ahead to extend the season.

Both are beautiful, and three rebloom scapes sounds great!
My Final Touch has quite a few buds left, but all the others are on their last.

Red Edition seems not to have the splotchies like some other Floyd Cove intros. Perhaps you can cross your seedling with something that has higher bud count.

Mantis - Red Edition is certainly much better than Born To Run in the splotch department. I have crossed the seedling to both reds and pinks and already have some of its babies growing in cups and small pots.
