Blogging Again

The roses grow, the spider mites invade, the greenhouse has to be sprayed, the weather is way too hot, the maintenance is overwhelming, and all of the rest of life goes on…..

I've missed blogging.

This post will be short, but wanted to share a photo of my best seedling coming from 'Eyes for You', used as a pollen parent.  The seed parent was a Hulthemia seedling of mine.  This new seedling has strong traits coming from it's pollen parent, including excellent fragrance.  It appears to be quite floriferous and clean to powdery mildew.  I am looking forward to seeing how it does outside next spring.


  1. Yea Jim's back. Looks like this bloom might be a little bigger than the typical hulthemia. Look forward to seeing more in the future.

  2. Lovely, good luck with this one.

  3. Thanks Dave and John! I'm hoping for much improvement outside this Spring.
