Lovely Phrag. I have Asuko Fischer 'Waunakee' x Waunakee Sunset
'Cherry' that hasn't bloomed yet. I very much hope it looks like
your bloom.

That sounds like an interesting cross. Yours might carry some red from the sargentianum.

I just remembered that it has bloomed. The first bloom was a
wonderful peachy color with very nice form. It has a fairly large
new growth now and I'm looking forward to the second blooming.
I had to go to the gh and look before I "remembered".

Yay besseae hybrids. That's pretty pale for a 'Cherry'. Thanks for sharing. Yes, I'm back from vacation. Since STF is linked to my work email I couldn't access it all week Went to Woodstream yesterday on the way home.

I hope you had a restful vacation. What did you find at Woodstream?
I KNOW you didn't leave empty handed!

I found I really need to be careful with my random seedlings. At Woodstream there are a lot of plants in the not for sale areas and also a lot with red tags. Red tag means they are probably not for sale or if you buy them they will sucker punch your wallet! I saw a few I wanted but did not even go there. I also found out how hot some plants can grow!!! I got a Driftless, a Prissy flavum, an andreetae in bud, an Augres x Castle Rock Creek, and a few others.20200810_113331_resized.jpg

That's what I was thinking. More on the pink side. I don't know if my growing conditions are keeping it from expressing as much red? I have two. One I bought from Chuck and one I bought on ebay.

Phrags that flower in summer when it’s hot are usually paler than winter blooms. It’s an anthocyanin thing. Nothing to worry about.
