Some unique babies from seed.

Edmonton, AB(Zone 3a)

Hi All
Last year I started some seed shared by ViolaAnn. Quite a few babies over wintered and here are two that are showing some promise.
This one has red legs.

And here is the one with color.
I have them labeled as to their Mom's and re did it again this spring but it seems they have really faded.

I would bet the first might be a seedling of 'Red Hot Flash'. Or maybe 'Little Red Rooster'. Either of those names ring a bell?

The other, who knows? 'Last Dance' maybe? (It's given me another lovely variegated seedling that looks somewhat similar). But I might ask for a division of it someday if it develops into a nice variegated plant. :-)

Re pens, if you can find a supplier, I have a Horta-Craft garden marking pen (available at Budd Gardens) and it doesn't fade like Sharpie Markers do. But I had difficulty searching on line to find a source.

Ann I have the names at home that you did send me and I had labeled everything so diligently and when they had faded I redid them and I think with all the water this spring they are very hard to read. I will pull them one at a time and review with a magnafying glass to see if I can read them. The little varigated one was a bit like this last year and it's nice to see it has stayed true. Most definatly will share in the future. Little red legs only started to show recently , or maybe it's now big enough that I can see it. The Red names were not part of the seeds you sent but I will review and let you know.
