I thought I would do something a little different today. I am pretty proud of our 2010 introduction, H. 'Robert W. Carr', named in honor of my late friend Dr. Bob Carr. In September 2007, Bob called me from the hospital and asked if I would send him some seedling pictures to view since he had not been able to see bloom that spring. I did, and he returned two and asked, “If either of these make the cut, would you name it for me?” Of course, I said yes. Ironically, it has the same parents as Bob’s H. ‘Wonder Of It All’.
I am going to show you several seedlings, all with one thing in common, one of the parents is H. 'Robert W. Carr'. Please enjoy.

You can see the diversity having one common parent and crossing it with a different parent.
As I looked around the greenhouse this morning I was shocked at the number of white cross tags indicating pods. I had thought to myself the other day that I should stop this nonsense but then the next day there would be an entirely new bloom that I just had to use. However, I have given myself until the 30th of April and then I will stop! We shall see how this works. Is this another New Year's resolution in April?
Life is very, very good.
