Mike suggested I start a poly thread, so here goes.
Two I posted elsewhere today were Complicated and Caribbean Frank League.
Give Me Eight
Chief Four Fingers
The Moose Camped in a Tent on Tuesdays
Which finger is that sticking up on 'Chief Four Fingers'?
Just looked a little rude and didn't know if I should be offended ; )
Some have been hybridized for that trait and are so registered. It's sort of like the trait of being doubled. The percentage of the trait can vary from about 50% to almost 100%. Then also, almost any cultivar can on rare occasion produce a poly.

That was great information Don, thanks! Hopefully other inquiring minds wanted to know too.
That Bela Lugosi and the seedling have very similar dark colors Mike...........gorgeous!!
Love the bright colors in that Open Hearth and Rocket booster as well !!
Thanks for that info as well Don on the polys...... learn something almost every day here on DG!
Mike, I just learned the terminology 'fused blooms' and your Bela Lugosi + Freewheelin = Hanky Panky Seedling.
What a seedling!
Boy Mike, you sure have a lot of poly blooms this summer.
Cindy I think that a lot of polys are missed because we don't check every bloom more closely.
That's probably true!! I had one blooming this morning and it was soooo hot I wouldn't even walk over to look at it! Poor thing, probably feels neglected - and might very well think it has been transplanted to H**L :( it is HOT here and the humidity is thru the roof making for almost unbearable conditions. It is days like this that I think I need to move WAYYYY North - but then I think about how cold ya'll get and know I couldn't handle that either!! :)
90 here before the rain came and we had 75% humidity on top of that.
Kathy, we are cooking here also. We got up to 91°f yesterday at O'Hare Airport which is our official reporting spot for the record. Midway airport which is closer to me recorded 93°f. Got a little rain this morning. "Every little bit helps". LOL!
Very lovely Cindy and Don. I have a few that I will post tomorrow. Lighthouse WG is a standout for sure.
Kathy, I had to read your post twice to make sure I read it right :)
Don love those two.
Cindy Baracuda Bay is a cutie also.
Kathy, Four Play is a bright light yellow bloom.
