(Old Termite x Patchy Fog)
Seifert 2019 Diploid, 34″, 4.5″, EM, Sev, 3 BR/22 BC
Soft chocolate brown with light pink midribs, small green throat outlined in cranberry.
Who doesn’t love chocolate? This soft chocolate bloom caught my eye out of many from the same cross. The performance has been good and I just spent time enjoying it this summer. I don’t know about seedling results because there was nothing else like it here to cross with it. It does produce pollen and made bee pods.

Huge, Long, Twisted, Toothy bright clean sherbert orange bitone, that fades to a bitone in warmer weather, with a white toothy edge. A stand out across the garden.

Pale lavender pink; large pale yellow eye and edge; green throat. Thick substance; holds great in the sun. When newly planted it can be similar in look to parent Cloud Rider but when mature it is quite different – lighter and pinker, an inch bigger, much more ruffled, and a better scape.

At first glance, Spacecoast Seize the Day may look like many other introductions of the same color hues. However, Seize the Day is ANYTHING but ordinary. Many days, it carries a Startling indigo eye over a bright green throat. However, Seize the Day changes from day to day, sometimes looking like the flower pictured, sometimes bursting out into a pattern, and sometimes even exhibiting small white teeth. Out of a Josh Jaques patterned seeding crossed with Mort Morss’s Ripples and Reflections, this cultivar carries patterns on both sides. This is one of our very BEST parents to date. We have some OUTSTANDING kids and futures out of this one.
(Cool Reflections X((Mighty Highty Tidy Seedling X (Wandering Minstrel X Ivory Angel Wings)))
S.Holmes. Sdlg G1189B Semi Tetraploid Mid, 6.5″, 14 buds, 36:” H, 3 Way Branching Rebloom
A nice light pinkish purple bitone with a green throat that blends into a bluish halo and a cream midrib. On extremely hot days, the color can fade to a pleasing lighter version in the evening. Ed’s Purple Rain with its nice three feet tall scapes and the ability to rebloom during under the right conditions will make a great addition to any garden.
Pod/ Pollen Fertile
- ADAMANT –
HACKSAW X BITES LIKE A THOUSAND TEETH
6″ X 28″ SEMI-EVERGREEN 20 BUDS 3 BRANCHES
ADAMANT IS THE FIRST OF THE HACKSAW KIDS TO BE INTRODUCED. IT BOASTS GOOD COLOR CLARITY AND THE COLOR HOLDS WELL IN FULL SUN. GREEN THROATS ARE IMPORTANT TO US AND ADAMANT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT IN THAT AREA. HOWEVER, IT IS THE BRISTLING EDGE ON THE PETALS AND SEPALS THAT SETS ADAMANT APART. WE THINK IT HAS MORE BREEDING ABILITY THAN EITHER PARENT.
(OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE X FLAMENCO CHRISTMAS) X RED FRIDAY
BRUCE, 2019 SF. 23” EM. 6.5” TET. SEV.
Sharks teeth all around this wine UF. Bold lime green throat helps get this new Tom Bruce introduction noticed. The picture below shows a mature clump in full bloom. Selected from my RED FRIDAY seedlings.

It’s a medium pumpkin blend with a large deep maroon violet eye and wavy, ruffled maroon violet rims. Strong scapes. Exuberant! 3 Br/ 16-19 buds. Fertile.

Dark Jubilee is a stunning black purple with a green/white edge that alternates between bubbles and teeth. The best feature of this flower is the clear petals with a notable lack of blemishes so common on dark flowers. Always attractive in the garden with excellent scapes. As a breeder, Dark Jubilee is fertile and is making beautiful kids.
(Kiss My Grits x Viva Pinata) x Fifth Order
Tetraploid 30 inch scapes, 6 inch bloom, average of 3 way branching, average of 18 buds, SEV, M, RE
Bloomed a few seedlings from Maui Honeymoon and it does pass along patterning. I love the fact that this one has a pinch downward toward the end of each sepal. This is done consistently and on each sepal. Might be a good one to counteract the effects of canoeing.
