MH1120A (Huben nr) 44 EM 5, Pink w'Purple Eye, Dor Dip
What a pleasant surprise! I wanted to bring the fabulous form of Ida Mae Norris into rebloom lines. I didn't get rebloom (and didn't expect it this generation.) But I got terrific tall scapes and amazing color clarity with excellent branching and budcount. It is sunfast, has 4 branches and 22 buds and should carry rebloom. The scapes fall: that is a major fault. But this is one of my most heavily used parents for 2014.

This sunfast sibling to MH1120A has an even better appearance. The scapes are slightly shorter, and it only had 4 branches and 10 buds this year, but the scapes do not fall. It was an obvious choice for a sibling cross, since it should also carry rebloom.

An awesome continuous rebloomer, with airy, well-branched scapes. It is also an amazing breeder, passing rebloom and often taking on the form and clarifying the color of the other parent.

One of the most awesome diploids ever bred.
