These seedlings are flowering after three years for the first one and after five years for the second group. One seedling of the second group has a pollen fertility of lower than one per cent. The others are infertile.

    Very imaginative cross Theo. From pictures it seems that stem length favours ‘Fairy Chimes’. Lovely miniatures but such a pity about the sterility.

    Some unusual hybridizing Theo. You are always coming up with something new and different. Inspirational for all of us. Keep up the good work.
