Shown below on the right is one of the original seedlings with the 2 suckers coming up from its roots seen on the left.
After digging them up, it is easy to see how long the suckers can be. I can imagine that this characteristic is an adaptation for survival in its usual desert environment.
In addition to the Hulthemia persica seeds, other non-rose seeds that I planted this year in the seedling benches included crape myrtle, strawberry, lilac and blueberry seeds.
Below are seedlings of open pollinated Pink Lemonade™ blueberry seeds.
I also planted regular blueberry seeds coming from several of my favorite blueberry varieties. These had already been potted up as seen below.
Most of the pots contain several blueberry seedlings. I am hoping that a few of them will produce some blueberries this next summer. The most vigorous, fruit producing seedlings will be planted in separate pots next year.
