Limited! We've crossed Peter Dawson with some whites before with disappointing results, probably due to the green in its background, so I thought of crossing it with one of our nice big greens instead. Expect large light green flowers on fairly long spikes for February. Could be some awards.
Limited! Here's another cross for big yellows. Probably will have longer spikes but slightly smaller flowers than LB 2002. Should bloom in March.
Greek Goddess 'Blushing' doesn't quite have the patterning of its more celebrated sisters, but is named for the eye-catching pink flush on the sides of its lip. Whether that comes through or not, these should be good whites to light pinks for March.
Both of these are big clear round white flowers, and we expect more of the same. These should bloom for the spring shows.
Limited! Here's a cross to produce some interesting pink standards, possibly with some patterning from Helen Tangcay. Presumably tetraploids to flower in Feb.-March.
This could be an interesting color combination. 'Mokoia Sunset' is a pastel orange color, while Sunshine Smile is a pure color yellow. Probably yellows with a hint of orange, but who knows. Tetraploid.
Valley Splash has been a good parent Down Under, and we've seen some nice results here. With Woody Wilson, these should be nice whites with a light pink patterns for the spring shows.
This is another cross of good big reds. We haven't used Burma Ruby much before this, but Ruby Lips 'Erika' is one of our best.
Another cross of two nice reds. Should be similar to LB 2082, although Ruby Lips 'Nancy' has more of a purple shade than 'Erika'. Look for flowers in Feb.-March.
Hazel Fay 'Shocking' was a surprise tetraploid from a mostly triploid orange cross, with great color to boot, and has been a mainstay of our breeding program. With the red Pontac, expect nice dark orange to light red flowers for February.
There could be some interesting color combinations here. Marie Bashir has a mahogany red pattern over a dark yellow background, while Karen is an intriguing pastel orange. Mostly oranges with some red overlay. Should be good growing plants as well.
'Morgan' is a light orange-red with tall spikes. Combined with Hazel Fay, we should have nice oranges, possibly with some red, for February.
'Lemon Meringue' is a new yellow with great shape and size. Ideally, here we'll see its size and the floriferousness, red patterning, and plant vigor from Marie Bashir in this cross.
Limited! Once again, a cross looking for big reds for the spring. Could be some show quality flowers here.
Here's a cross to provide some interesting colors. We use Dorothy Rowe a lot for the intense bright dark pink color it provides, while Ruby Valley is an Australian hybrid that we haven't used in breeding before. We hope to get some interesting dark pink to magenta colors on arching spikes that should flower in February.
'Chartreuse' is a new seedling-grown plant that we haven't used before. Combined with the old reliable Green Glass, these should be good-sized standard flowers in the green shades for the spring shows.
Limited! Both of these are plants that we've gotten from Down Under. Here we're looking for upright pink standards, some with a pink pattern over a lighter background.
Valley of Death '600' is a big dark red from our second remake of the cross, while Karen Hawaiian is a nice round orange. These should be nice dark orange to red flowers with good size and shape for the spring shows.
If you're looking for pure color yellows, this is the cross for you. Both of these are large flowers that bloom in Jan.-Feb.
We haven't used Delta Dawn much before but decided to give it a shot here. Combined with Valley of Death, these should be nice dark orange to red flowers that should bloom for the spring shows.
Here's a cross for those looking for big whites. 'Sugar' is a new seedling-grown plant that is a clear white, while Woody Wilson is one of our old reliable good-growing standards. Should bloom in March.
Limited! These should be good growing big standards in the white to pale pink shades. Some may have a pink pattern over a lighter background color.
These could be very nice. Marie Bashir 'Flash' is a vigorous-growing, very floriferous red-patterned orange, while Ruby Lips 'Erika' is one of our best reds. Should be dark orange to red flowers, mostly with a darker pattern, for March. Could easily make a specimen plant.
Here we're looking to get more patterned flowers. We haven't used Ablaze much due to a short flower count, but are counting on the very floriferous Marie Bashir to counteract that. Some of these may be a solid yellow-orange, but most should have a red pattern over that background color.
Night Hawk is another one that we haven't used much for breeding before. It's a reliable solid chocolate brown that can have two spikes on a bulb. With Marie Bashir, these should be brown to dark orange base colors, some with a dark red-brown overlay.
This is a cross to get some nice bright pinks. Da Vinci is a plant that we got from Valley Orchids in Australia, while Dorothy Rowe has been one of our best pink breeders. Should bloom in February.
