This seedling has been under review for a few years now, and I have finally decided to keep it. Pollinated in 2002 and I have only five bulbs of it. Very slow grower but hopefully it will settle down as the bulbs which developed last year are pretty good, so fingers crossed.

It is a nice soft pink with some hints of lemon and no blue pigments at all. Should be useful for breeding. Fortunately, as a rule the sluggish growth factor is rarely transmitted in my experience, so fingers crossed that it successfully pollinates.

What were you trying to decide on Steve, colour, shape, growth?

It was a case of how well it multiplied if at all. It was extra reluctant to multiply and the substance was not the best when it first appeared, meaning that the longevity of the blooms was also a factor. It seems that now it has settled it does 2 weeks plus, so that is just about acceptable. Some do three to four weeks.
