Product Description

I think I probably say this every year, but we love the folks over at Cliviamart. Every year they bring us better and better crosses that just make sense. 

 

Take a look at the pollen parent for a minute, and lets talk a little bit about red breeding. One of the biggest goals in red breeding is to create flowers that have no yellow throat, just red all the way through. A few people have succeeded in this. Mr. Yang's "Carnelian" is one such flower. 

 

The road to creating these has been through the interspecifics, and that is exactly what is going on with this cross. 

 

As Always, We remind you that these are CROSSES. Not CLONES.  Seed breeding is like people breeding. If you have a parent with blue eyes and a parent with brown eyes, there's no guarantee you are getting a blue eyed kid. It all depends on the background genetics of the parents. We try to buy crosses that make sense to us, and that we think will create good flowers/plants. We buy from breeders we trust, and who understand these facts, and breed in ways that work. That reduces the risk of getting something orange. That does not remove that risk. As always the risk is lowest with like to like and selfed crosses but even with a selfed cross sometimes you get a surprise.
