Sam's Choice is Rex X Mont Millais. As @Paphman910 mentioned MM Best is MM x self. I have another cross Rex Jr. (Rex x self) x MM Best. I have only bloomed one so far, but the MM Best parent was dominant.Thank you for your kind words, Justin - and the example to compare with!
When the flowers first opened, I was slightly (only very, very slightly!) disappointed regarding the size, but immediately took a liking to both its colours, stance and form.
Do you happen to know more about the genealogi of this cross?
I've seen a discussion as to wether 'Sam's Choice' is Val x MM or Rex x MM - the latter position makes sense, when seeing the (still) slightly bicoloured pouch and the 'petiteness' of the flowers; the former allegedly is based on information from Sam (and one would suppose he should know as the choice was after all his?!).
Might 'MM Best' be a selfing of MM?
Hope you - or some other Roth specialist in these page can contribute with an answer?
