It is now early season here. Habit has started flowering, which is one of the first, as have a number of early selections.

Early division 3’s are rare for me but a few are starting to appear.

Fred Silcock has indicated that he now has some nice rimmed trumpets. I can well believe it as he had nice ones in the 1990’s. 03_28 is not large and could do with a stronger stem. Sometimes it measures trumpet but most are a fraction short.

A flower I’m very pleased with is 11_29 – a big smooth early flower with a strong stem and plenty of substance and showing signs of rot resistance. It’s color might not impress but being (Temple Gold 1Y-Y x Kalimna 1W-P) x (Nynja 2Y-Y x Decoy 2W-K) I’m hoping it will be a parent of high quality early pink trumpets.
