We have Paul Aden to thank for Fragrant Bouquet (Fascination x Fragrant Summer) and its ensuing fragrant sports and hybrids. 30 years (1982) since it was registered.

Interestingly enough the Registry lists the parentage as Fascination x H. Summer Fragrance (not Fragrant Summer). Summer Fragrance goes back to Plantaginea.

Here's H. Fascination, the mama plant of Fragrant Bouquet.

And here is the Emerald Charger, which I got from Bob Solberg. For some reason, I feel it looks a lot like some of this family....but cannot find at this moment what I read about it. Anyway, hope Steve_Mass sees it for his question about Cathedral Windows....

And a hybrid of Fragrant Bouquet x Aden seedling

Called 'So Sweet', part of the FB family and another Aden plant, it too is fragrant.

I'm really enjoying these "family" pics--especially when they include Cathedral Windows--which I just finished planting about 15 minutes ago. It came wrapped in wet newspaper, not many roots, but healthy growth on top--so I'm glad to hear it is a good, strong grower. I've got it shaded for a couple days here while it settles in. Can't wait to see it big and brawny like in these pictures here.


RE: Fragrant Bouquet Family aka Holy Mole we got Guacamole

I think my only members of this family are Guacamole and Stained Glass. My Guac took a hit with that late frost and is looking bit tough.

Emerald Charger is a sport of Stained Glass introduced by Mark Zillis in 2010. You should send your picture to the Library. The only Library pic is of a much smaller plant than yours.
