A very select roth from the OZ. It is Rex x MM. It is a first time bloomer. The best of the group that bloomed this year including all his awarded roths, even though they were underwatered by the previous workers.

Don't you get sick of using the word "select' left and right? Or obsessing about the OZ?

Nope, if I did I would stop obsessing.

First of all, I only use the word select when it applies. Since I don't name many of my plants. I'd rather just say select. If the plants have been seleted out of many and sold as select I indicate that. I enjoy select plants at this point in my hobby. I have posted non select plants like the second giant stone.

Second many of my plants come from the OZ because I enjoy many of their breeding strenghts. More importantly I like and trust Terry. I have bought from many growers and have had trust issues with some. I have never had a single bad experience buying select plants from the OZ.

Interesting to know what I am trying to live up to! I now understand what you meant about 2 weeks to open fully. Once they open they are slow to become magnificent!
I can't wait to see it. any pics soon?

Why don't you give them clonal names? If they are superior plants then I would think you should name them. Especially if you divide them etc.

Lol, I am too indecisive Candace. You r right, I should start naming them since i am breeding with them.

No pictures yet, but it's one of the not select OZ 'Rex' x 'Mont Millais'. I'm going to give it a couple more weeks to show me what it can do and then try to grow it up. First bloom seedlings...pftt!

For simplicity, I give my "keeper plants" a letter or number designation unless it has a very distinct characteristic or gets awarded. Then I give them a cultivar name.

I don't think it's 'obsessing'. Just keeping us aware of what's being produced/obtained. Unless I'm asked not to, I always try to post my sources because it helps w/ business.

Thanks for the backing. I agree naming the source and how it was obtained is helpful especially for breeding purposes.
