have no idea, was a stick i picked up under a rosabelle at eric's, was hoping for rosabelle. i guess eric would know what it is. it has had about 10 flowers before that were yellow, this was a nice surprise.
Arlene, I was just going to say that one looks very much like a DXS hybrid. The calyx is very different though on these type hybrids. The calyx is long and narrow which is depicting a versicolor hybrid. The tiny slits in the calyx depict its aurea x suaveolens genes while the angle to calyx is offset on many of these hybrids...similar to the versiclor angle on many of these hybrids. The angle was at about a 45 degree cut if memory serves me on at least two of those hybrids. Still, the slits were present on the front teeth. The lenght of the cut or 45 degree angle was much shorter than on a versicolor however. Again, showing its influence, but not dominating. A true blend of the calyx's.
The actual opening was less than an inch as well if memory serves me. It was angled though and no teeth were present on the back just as one would see on a versicolor. The front teeth did not always seperate either.
Arlene you have to name that one! Its a beautiful cross Brugman! Wow I just love this one.
Brugman would this one be a good candidate to cross with cremesickle using creamsiclke as the mother plant? I would be interested to see this orangish-peach border on the creamsickle double or some combination thereof. Imagine the outermost flower with the banded colored rim and the inner flower with a solid color or vice versa...Oooh La La!
Brugman, can't get a pic yet, checked though and from the back of the flower it does look like a versi/candida calyx, the bloom open now is like that, with 2 slits on the front.
Tig, this is the one you got a cutting from i was wondering if it was twisted sister. the color varies, and the flower size varies greatly, some blooms almost twice the size of others open at the same time. i really really like this one, and it's been a pretty good bloomer for me considering it is in a pot and sometimes wilts with lack of water. will have more blooms open soon.
