Dany, those are beautiful! 300 photo's? I can't imagine having that many in bloom, maybe someday!

Gautier, MS

All your blooms are AWESOME Dany! It's amazing to just think of taking pictures of so many.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Amazing blooms Dany. All gorgeous but partial to that 1st set of light blues

szarvas, Hungary

A medium blue with velvet effect is rare!
Purple or dark blue with velvet effect .... there are many! ..... Akatsumi no Umi, Star of India, Hatsu Arashi .... etc...

Dany, with regard to this post - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=9220114 - "All my crosses with Youjiro first generation (F1) are sterile" -

could you donate some pollen from a more fertile flower to those?

Also, if my notes are correct, all the seeds that I received from Gardener_2005 in January 2007 were youjiro crosses. Could you include any of her youjiro crosses in your crosses that she may have sent you? Did you save seeds from any of her youjiros that you might have grown out? Hopefully, she will be making more of her seeds available some time this coming fall or winter.

This one came from her "Picotee Mix" when I grew it out in 2007. Although a seedling from this one in a subsequent year did not come true for me, at least one of the folks who requested seeds from this one did get the same flower.

Another seedling I grew from another youjiro mix that she called "magentas/pinks blizzards & solids/picotee white edge" is the large, deep rose MG with a white picotee in the foreground of this picture I took from my 2007 garden (She wrote that this mix came from "I. youjiro x Ukigumo with I. youjiro x Mt. Fuji") -

(The dusky large purple MG also with a white picotee climbing up the yew hedge in the middle background is Emma's Velvet Plum.

(I owe so much of the magic of my 2007 garden to both Gardener_2005 and EmmaGrace, as well as other generous gardeners that also sent seeds to me.)

The two MG flowers to the right are from another youjiro mix of hers that Gardener_2005 called "Large Blue, Purple Star Pattern, Blue Star Pattern" - love those delicate spidery rays on this one & the sharp contrast between pale & dark blue -

Evidently, Emma did send me some seeds in 2005 that she called I. youjiro "Baby Blue..." So, Dany, if you also got these from Emma, you would have more youjiros to cross with your MGs, along with Gardener_2005's. Following are some of the results from growing out Emma's youjiros two generations after receiving her seeds -

Dany - if any of my grow-outs from these youjiros of Gardener_2005 & Emma would be useful to you, let me know - I still have a few left, although not of this one - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=9221166

Those are beautiful blooms! Love your garden!

(Zone 7a)

Thank you Linda. That was such a wonderful year, thanks to gardeners on this forum. Hope Dany's pollen situation improves with respect to youjiros.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Beautiful blooms Dany and Karen.

szarvas, Hungary

Karen, thank you for sharing !
When we make crosses with Youjiro, even when the F2 ... F3 has longer the characteristic leaf Youjiro they can still be sterile!
Sometimes the cultivar we used to cross has in their ancestors some blood (genes) of Youjiro that's why it's hard to get rid of this sterility.

241 pictures today ..... bad day! lol!

Here Aigasuri from Azuremore .... looks like Fuji no Ao , a lot of blooms .... and there an UGLY flower ... oh what an ugly ... lol !

A flower unlike any other!
