There are a few new Hulthemia seedlings that have bloomed this year that have gotten my attention. Below, I have included photos of two of them.
The first seedling shown below highlights how a lighter coloring around the blotch gives it better definition.
The next seedling, although it doesn't have a lighter color area surrounding the blotch, because the blotch is so large, it appears almost like a target. If maturity causes the blotch to become 3 times as large and more intense (which is usually seen as Hulthemias mature), there will only be a smaller fringe of lighter pink when the seedling blooms outside next Spring. I am hoping that this second seedling has good blotch color heat stability - we should know if that is the case in the next few weeks.
