Wow looks like both ATTAM and tetKI battled to dominate the flower. Looks like a bit of both... Looks to be potentially nice. Lots of teeth for sure, wonder how hot it was that day? My select toothy seedlings were super toothy on really hot days. I'm sure you had a very fun bloom season. I will be speaking at the April 5 PDS meeting with George Doorakian and Curtis Noel, should be a good time. I will also have a seedling slide show of 2013 bloom season. Keep up the good work dan.
Ps the crosses you sent me from the LA will probably bloom this summer

One of my favorite pattern seedlings, it's an odd one!

Thanks Dan. I just added a few photos of some of my larger flowers to my 2012 seedling album - most aren't close up pictures. So far the one seedling you've already seen is my one impressive Monster seedling (or the only one I still grow). I hope to have a few more bloom for the first time this summer - including a few out of that one. I also have a list of about 30 crosses to make this coming summer, which will hopefully produce some of my largest seedlings yet. It's too bad that even if they work, which could be iffy working with such large flowers, they won't bloom until 2016 (at the earliest). But it gives me something to look forward to. Does anyone else keep a list of future crosses, or is this a sign I have a problem ?
You have some extremely impressive patterned seedlings Dan. I still remember some of those seedlings you showed at the local daylily meeting, plus during the winter I go back to an old Paul Lewis blog post now and again to check them out.

I have always liked going through previous seasons' images, especially when it's miserable and frozen outside. I have not taken tetTK to tetSS, and had not really considered it, actually. TK is a very weak northern plant, and SS is decent but not amazing in and of itself. Both have been shown to be great breeders. As I feel comfortable doing my own conversions, I'd rather name the diploid cross of the two, find a good plant there, then convert that. Neither of the conversions I had were pod fertile, in my experience, but both as very much so as dips, so I suspect a conversion could be made that was as well.
I have seen very few tet TK kids, but more from tet KALEIDOSCOPIC INTRIGUE. For teeth, I now I had some kids from tet TK pollen on TRULY ANGELIC, DESIRE OF NATIONS, and a toothy baby of mine from VERTICAL HORIZON X ENTWINED IN THE VINE). I have also gotten tet TK and tet KI onto ATTAM. One seedling from ATTAM x tet KI has bloomed, see attached. Based on this pic, maybe this will go well with toothy lines?

Thanks for the kind words Dan. Hope all is well, I have been busy going over seedling pictures and cautiously choosing selects to move in the spring. Have you been able to cross TTK to TSS? Are either conversion pod fertile? I would think you could get some hardy kids from TSS. Have you worked TTK into toothy lines? Maybe to all things to all men? Now I'm just ranting.

I think you guys are really doing some awesome stuff! Cameron - I really like you MONSTER flowered efforts so far, but have only seen a few pictures. Is there an album of seedly images I can check out? And Zach, the cristate stuff is really interesting and is something I am going to get into once I have some space. I think these directions are all extremely valuable, especially up in our neck of the woods.
For my seeds, I'm all patterns and blue eyes right now, my own tetra Kaleidoscope-line babies mixed together, and also playing with pansy-faced, super flat dips. Also, I have some tet Peppermint Delight selects I want to pair with tet Smoke Scream progeny, looking for large blooms with big eyes. Guess I'll have to wait and see if I can make this kinda cross if they survive a New England winter in pots!
