    One of the first crosses I made. Flowered a few worth keeping but I like this best.

    Must think of a name to register it. --- Rock Ruby ----Win Ruby---New Ruby--Another Ruby or just forget the ruby.??

    It has a wonderful color and a good shape. I like it too!
    What about Hi Winston, High Ruby Chill, Ruby Chilly ...

    Did you use it for further breeding?

    Normally I tend to find complex hybrids the result of 'a heinous act against nature' :wink: In this case, though, I must admit, that I can see the labour of love put into creating the flower - and sense the aesthetic value of the end product.

    Jims Ruby, Coral Sea Ruby, Ruby of The Southern Cross, Rolled Hat Ruby, etc. etc.

    Keep us posted, when you name your love child! :)

    Kind regards,
    Jens, Copenhagen (hmmm, maybe a good clonal name for an awarded albino could be 'Northern Star' in our, i.e. northern hemisphere here?!)
