HI Dane, thanks.

I have made many crosses with moyesii as pollen parent but only have a handful of seedlings. I have one with Joycie that has barely survived winter in the ground but does hang on and is fertile but none of the seedlings survived. I have another with Incantation that is a prolific bloomer but no f2's that survive from it either. As mother moyesii has never given me seedlings that survived.

There are a couple more that I'll have to look up when I get back home. I'm away during breeding season this year caring for some of my own F2's.

The pollination that produced this seedling was made May 25, 2009. It flowered for the first time this year (2015) on May 31. The pollen parent is an F1 moyesii, the seed parent is Persian Peach.
Hi Don,

that's a very interesting cross! How did it evolve? Have you other crosses with moyessi as pollen parents?

Here you go David. A new seedling blooming today. My "PL4" x First Impression. (PL4 is listed on HMF.) Tiny little hulthemia blotch but a nice clear yellow. Healthy little plant already. (The spotting on the leaves is fish emulsion/worm tea.)

Congrats Don! That's a long time to wait but looks like it was worth it. Hope you can take that one forward!

Very nice cross! Good to see that after all that wait you have the blotch (assuming that was one of the features you were trying to capture). Hopefully you'll have success using this one as a parent.

LOL! Great sense of humor Philip. Thank you for catching that. I did mean Joseph.

"I envy your blotches!"

Words I have never uttered to a woman...
But I think you meant "Joseph", Rob. ;-)

Judith,

I envy your blotches! Very nice.

Hi Judith, what has become of the first seedling, the creamy looking one ?

Re: First Blooms for 2015

Thanks everyone. It's always fun and exciting to see what comes of each cross as we all know. I haven't done ANY breeding this year as I'm limping a lot of my plants along with the drought here. I don't want to over stress any of them, though that might induce an increase in hip/seed production I suspect. If I get a good summer bloom out of some of my better plants, I may try to do some late crossing. Otherwise I'll hope for a wet winter here and a good spring 2016. Meaning no new babies until 2017! :-(

In the meantime, here's another from a seedling that's already on it's second bloom cycle and sending out new canes. Super healthy, no mildew, no rust. This is a self of M37-1 x Home Run. M37-1 being the first hulthemia hybrid that Jim Sproul gave me in 2011. Thanks again Jim!

Excellent, Joseph! I wish even one of my hulthemia seedlings would show it's splotch!

Really really nice Joseph!

Thought I'd share a few photos. Got a late start with planting and thus with first blooms but I've gotten a few nice plants and flowers. You'll see the hulthemia influence in all of them in varying degrees. A couple of them are already repeating and are making nice chunky plants. More good things to come I hope. Would love to see what everyone else has been up to this spring.
