Graham won Champion Bloom at a recent North Island National with  2 Y – O   ‘ Tripapon ‘  from the cross  Scarlet Cord  –  x  –  Banker , which has also given some  good early redups . Graham recommends using Banker for very smooth seedlings , but they need a strong colour flower if the wish is for bright reds .
