Donna, I think your Gervase is gorgeous this year. I love the first stripey one. They all look great. How interesting that Santa Cruz has some pap cross seeds growing. Good luck with those!

LAST YEAR IT WAS PINK THIS YEAR IT HAS MANY FACES: well said that is what I like about the plant.
If it was growing in a bed along with other,without a marker;could you have recognised it?

Arif, Most definitely I would have recognized it since only one flower was mostly red, the others.. although different.. have that look with the small red stripes that so far I've only seen in Gervase..and by the I forgot to mention that there is a fragrance to him/her..you have to stick your nose in the flower, but it's there.

Alana and AJ.. I am hoping for a couple of seeds, but it's way too early only about 3 weeks.. the seedpod is so tiny, but I guess that's expected on such a small flower.. the pod is still dark green, looks like a pea.. still hard and the pedicle hasn't started to wither, that's usually the first sign for me...

Michelle, Rock 'n Roll is a large bright red and white double..very loud..but stick your nose in the flower fragrant..I forgot to mention, that Gervase is stick your nose in the flower fragrant also..I'd recommend a Gervase between the two flowers...I wouldn't be without one...
