2013 Introductions & Seedlings


JONATHAN AND LEAH

Jonathan And Leah (Wilson 2013) ((White House Lady x Desert Icicle) x Margo Reed Indeed) SEV, is 36" tall with a profusion of near white blooms during its show time. A beautiful lime-green throat accompanies each self and a few smaller recurrent scapes come forth when first blooms show. A diploid, this plant shows 3 branches and 15 buds per. It is extremely pod fertile (with pods setting at virtually every attempt) and is pollen fertile too. It is a late season bloomer. In most respects I think it is an improved MRI. Jonathan And Leah is named for my niece and her husband and was a wedding gift for them. This is the first release from my white program which began in 2008. $100 S/O

EIGHT IS GREAT

Eight Is Great (Wilson 2013) (Scatterbrain x Give Me Eight) SEV, and is 48" tall with 7" blooms. I wish I could find the photo I took of the maiden bloom of this plant. It looked nothing like what you now see in the photos. It was a skinny spidery poly with not much color and character compared to the mature bloom of today. Eight Is Great could be a poster child for not tossing plants on first bloom. Color is muskmelon with a lighter midrib and a small green throat. It tends to throw extra petal pieces in the throat. This polymerous (99%) diploid holds 3 branches per scape and 12 buds per with a long period of bloom. It is pod and pollen fertile and is a mid-late bloomer. I was encouraged by Bobby Baxter to register this plant because of its high percentage of poly blooms. $50/2 fans

BETSY'S BLACK STAR

Betsy's Black Star (Wilson 2013) (Chief Black Hand x Mascara Snake) SEV, is 36" tall and has 9" UF star blooms; is a 4:1 spider. This diploid was a winner from its maiden bloom in 2006. As a rule, I give seedlings six years to show me what they can do in my zone 5 garden. Each year it has put on a winning display during bloom season. It has 2 branches per scape with 12 buds and is pod and pollen fertile with its mid-late bloom. I would say that the color is a deep burgundy-red with a star-shaped yellow throat turning to lime in the heart; long period of bloom. $50/2 fans

VIRGIE FEAGINS

Virgie Feagins (Wilson 2013) (unk x Six Legs A Leaping) Dor, is 46" tall with 7" butter yellow blooms, a lighter yellow midrib, a yellow throat and a lime heart. She is a midseason diploid and has 3 branches with 16 buds per scape. The pollen is fertile but she has picked up Six Legs' trait of not being pod fertile. Virgie Feagins is another in my series of honoring my life's heroes, this one being named for my country school teacher (fourth, fifth and sixth grades). One day because of my questioning she challenged me to become a teacher. That challenge was always fertile in my mind and was indeed realized as I did become a public school teacher for thirty-three years. Thank you, Mrs. Feagins. $50/2 fans
