I don't have anything to compare this too, that's why I could possibly be a smidge wrong.
But, if left to my own devices, I can easily go out on a limb and say, "The number of seed pods on my Ruby Stella is incredible!"
Show me your Seed Pods
Ruby Stella is very fertile. I have a lot of bee pods also. I have been saving selective seeds this year due to the seeds from last year that I did not touch. The crisper drawer in the fridge is full. There is some that I bought on the auction late winter that I will plant next spring - late winter indoors to give them a early start.
Cindy that is so unusual.
Wow Cindy, the scapes are so rigid it's difficult to get that configuration. I bet you don't see that but once in a lifetime.
Sounds like you have lot's of work to do Mike, that's quite the seed stash. I wish you many interesting and beautiful blooms.
I usually don't use Ruby Stella in hybridizing but this year I made an exception and crossed it with a new little one I got called Little Mucha Minto. I put pollen from LMM on a lot of my smaller blooms. And Mike, I also used pollen from Carmen Renee a lot.
Here is Little Mucha Minto, a cute little one.
Little Mucha Minto is a cute one, I bet that's a good cross.
Cindy I agree with Robin on that green throated beauty.
Cindy, I hope you share the results...whenever that time comes about.
That's very pretty Cindy, I love the yellow eye (or is that a halo?) with a tiny green throat, thanks for sharing.
