I have had Frans Hal for years and it is a really good grower, lots of branches and blooms. It isn't my very favorite but it is bright and cheerful, so I have decided to make a special area for it with DLs that look smashing with it. I will take some pics of the ones I have blooming now that will go in that bed. I think I will add Bittersweet Destiny and Sunset Celebration if I can find them. Are they still blooming Karen?

It has pretty kids too------and it's easy---pop the seeds in in the Fall and they come up in the Spring-although I keep losing track of who the daddy is-------------------------Weedy

Below is a seedling of Frans Hals x bee.
The other photo is ofcourse the pod parent Frans Hals. I really like it. It has been around for about 50 years.

Blomma, I have wondered about using FH for hybridizing and whether all the kids would be bicolors. Is that purply bee pod a bicolor also?
Some other DLs I just added to the FH bed are Sombrero Way and Lady Lucille and Tigger. They are also still blooming. Sombrero Way is one of my faves.

I would like to get some bi-color spiders and have been crossing FH with a lot of spiders and ufo's. Maybe in a couple of years I will know.

caitlin, So far only one seedling from FH bloomed. It is pretty but no, it is not a bicolor. I more or less ignored crossing it this summer. I had so many new tets to cross before going to work.
