For those of you who had not seen pictures of our flavum colored Saint Ouen's (made with besseae flavum 'Taiyo' AM/AOS (4N) ) I posted some more pictures. This was a very variable cross as you can see from the pictures. The colors ranged from pure yellow, to yellow with peach, to peach to pink. My favorite ones where the yellow ones with a little peach in the center. One of the seedlings from this cross got an AM!












Let me know which one you like the best.

I love that second one you posted, it's stunning! I think this has got to be my absolute favourite Phrag. cross.

I am with Lien - particularly like the second, and the last I think is very interesting. Mine is finally in sheath again. Unfortunately, the plant has struggled a little, but I hope this is a good sign.

I don't care for the form of the second one, but if it was mine, I'd still keep it around. The picotee on the third is stunning . . . but uneven. Maybe it'll stabilize in subsequent bloomings? I think overall my favourite is the first – very full, round, well balanced flower, with an interesting blush to it.

Edit: I just looked at the pics on the website.

The first one there – the white-yellow one – is my new favourite! Great cross, BTW! I love the form of St. Ouen, and the colours you're getting here are terrific.

I agree with Lien and Heather the second is my favorite, but the first one is very nice, also. The third is also interesting in a quirky way, with the strong contrast between the yellow and red. It kind of reminds me of when my kids were two and three and they got hold of mom's red lipstick.:evil:
