It's very dramatic, I really like it...

(Don't tell anyone I said that, it's got pink in it!)

I missed it the first time around, so thanks for bumping. Chris, have you multiplied it yet?

Bad news guys, the 'four by four' has gone PINK!



Only a joke. This is another seedling. I have replanted the 'original black' in better soil and I will keep you posted.
It has doubled to two plants but all the other blooms were 'normal'.

Pretty Pink Four By Four

Pretty Pink Four by Four looks nice too Chris  :love:

You will be able to start a new range  ???

I guess the big guys would stabilize the four leaf with tissue culture but even then they do not always come that way, it always seems some sort of percentage as with the doubles.

I wonder if you kept selfing them and just picking out the 4 petal whether eventually you would breed out the 3 petal ???

Without pointing a finger at anybody  ::) I do hope that Clemens  :o
