Caesar's Brother volunteer seedlings

Posted by RichardInOhio 6a (My Page) on

Hi all,

I've asked this on the propogation forum too, as a newcomer and not sure where to post . . . I understand that Caesar's Brother does not come true from seed. But before I weed the bumper crop of babies I've got this spring from my mother plants, I wonder if volunteers do bloom? Are they attractive? What's the color likely to be?

Also, can anyone recommend a pure white with the height and vigor of Caesar's Brother?

Thanks for any help!

Esther C.D.M., Harpswell Happiness, So Be It (34in), White Swirl have some yellow where standards meet falls.

Can't tell from pic if 'Belissima' has the same bit of yellow.

You might finds heights at Ensata Gardens.

Volunteers bloom. They might be attractive, who knows what pollen the bees brought in? It's likely they will be the same color as Caesar's Bro, since blue is dominant in Siberians.
