Hi Daffnetters,
 The atrocious weather continues over Kapiti and most of N Z
Very unsettled here, no chance of doing any hybridising, no sunshine and a lots of wet flowers.
Allthose early crosses I ,d hoped to make will probably have to wait until next season unless it defies the current forecast.
Oneof the few positives is that the flowers love the rain,  size is great and growth  is strong.
A good sign with the first shows about three weeks away.
Another  Mum,  Dad  and the kid.
Kazan  x  Sol d,or sdlg  Same pollen parent as Kapiti  Kauri.
Very tall,  1  — 4  flowers  per  head. Mild sol  fragrance.
Cup opens yellow – orange ,  matures to true light orange.
Strong growth heavy foliage,rapid  multiplyer.
