2012 Introductions . . . Part 5

I have spent the last couple days selecting potted cultivars to take into the greenhouse this winter for hybridizing. I have a variety . . . reds, eyes and edges, seedlings and yellows (naturally) etc., etc. My goal is to have about 150 pots to hybridize with. I can generate more seeds with that number than I can plant. It has been fun to think what you would like to do, then select the plants to do it.
