Black Purple Four By Four has gone Three Wheel
« on: December 16, 2012, 11:15:21 AM »
You can remember Black Purple that I posted in December 2010. It is flowering for me now but only 'ordinary' flowers.
This one was open this morning.



...and this was back in 2010.



Enjoy
Chris

It's still very nice. There are not too many that polytepal consistantly. Many will do it occasionally, I like it especially when the really good ones I'm using do it because then I get extra pollen! :mmm:

Thanks for your comments John. The following seedling is from seeds you kindly send me last year or the year before. The parentage are Betty warren Woods x Shores of Time. This one has produced several polytepal blooms this year.

Chris even though Black purple flowered "ordinary' as you call it it is still something really beautiful. The seedling flower is also a real stunner. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards
Eddie
Ps I will post some ordinary flowers just hereafter.

My Apologies, John, this is one of my own seedlings. I got confused with my numbering. This plant is now producing a second scape and one can clearly see(from the flower buds) that most of them will be polytepal.

That other one is very nice, but I was disappointed to hear it wasn't from my seed, I'll have that cross blooming here next year BWW X SOT, I was getting excited.

 :woohoo: Chris

Love the black purple - hope you made some seeds I may be able to buy of you soon.

I can always live in hope that one day it will turn into a four by four

What happened to its lovely pink sister that was four by four ???

Just love the polypetals - the apricot one looks delicious too.
Never regret anything that made you smile.

John, I do have a few nice ones from the seed I got from you. This year has been very hectic and I did not take that many photos, but will share some photos with you at some stage.

It was a bad year in the garden here, after a very mild winter the plants looked great. Then it got hot and dry, I gave up hybridizing after a week of poor pod sets and watched a lot of buds just fall off. I watered, but it was never enough. I took less than 100 photos because I felt the flowers were smaller than they should have been because of lack of water.
