Wow! Red on the front AND the back. Extremely nice to look at. But then what did I expect 8-) Glad you are able to be posting again. I always enjoy seeing what's new up on the cliffs...

I hate to say it again because is has already been said twice...however WOW! Is it my imagination or is this more red than any other leaf....?? Very nice! Leafmold, do you have a special focus (i.e., characteristics) in your hybridzing program (I'm impressed by everything I have seen).

Leafy, will that leaf yellow up, or will it remain green. What does the parentage indicate?


P.S. Do you really use locking forceps to hold stamens when spreading pollen?
