Very nice! Have the other seedlings in this batch bloom yet?

Thanks stross and barbara!

I have one more from this batch that sprouted, and she's remaining very stubborn. She has a lot more variegation but her leaves are remaining small like, about the size of a semi-mini. I have no idea what her flower will look like either.

I hope you post its bloom when she decides to bloom! I love Genetic Blush (have a small plant growing right now), and it's exciting to see what sort of flowers you're getting using Genetic Blush as a parent. Thanks so much for sharing.

Unfortunately I've found Genetic Blush to be fairly sterile when it comes to being the seed parent, however, the pollen seems to be rather viable.
