I am so excited!!!! I discovered this morning that 2 seeds have germinated among the first seeds I planted on 7/25/12, in an astonishing 4 days. The seeds were not pre-soaked, just taken from the refrigeration to the planting soil. Now I can begin to imagine what the blooms will look like in about 9 months.
The cross was [(Santa's Little Helper X Red Hot) X Barbara Mandrell] (bottom left). The seedling is one from Bill Waldrop and of course, H. 'Barbara Mandrell' (top left) is David Kirchhoff's amazing red.
Life is very, very good.
