These two are results from 0-47-19 X Tom Thumb. The single bloom flowers only in spring, based upon its performance in the old Encino climate. The double seedling repeats. The flower is remescent of Anne Belovich, though smaller and in large clusters.

I'm ready when you are Kim. Let me know if you need a test garden in NJ for the double flowered one above :-) Are cuttings of your Hugonis hybrids still available?

The Hugonis seedlings may be soft as many had to be quite severely trimmed, but sure! I'll see what I can do to get photos of them to give you some selection. There are quite a few of them now, from several different crosses. Most are from 1-721Hugonis with a few straight from Hugonis itself. Some are "mini" with thinner wood and smaller foliage while a few are from Secret's Out and Ping Dong Yue Ji with larger foliage and wood.

Thanks so much Kim. They sound wonderful. Would love to get some hugonis blood in my lines.

You're welcome, Rob. My pleasure. I'm almost half through planting last year's seeds. It's a bit breezy and only 68 degrees, but that sun is BRUTAL! Had to come in to cool off and rehydrate. Once they're all under soil, I'll take some photos to send you.

Geesh, Kim. I'd have thought you would still be unpacking! LOL.

Let me know if/when you might be up for a "care package" (hehehe...)

Zone 19, eh? (Ah, to be able to grow the things you will be able to grow...)

Oh, yes unpacking continues and likely will for many months (years?) to come. But, I can only do so much of that for so long before I NEED sunlight! I need to change my profile because that's the old climate. This one actually experiences some winter freezes, according to the neighbor. But, believe it or not, there are things I can grow here I couldn't grow before. The hills around here are covered in blueberries, raspberries, etc. and there are kale and broccoli fields everywhere. There are three Farmer's Markets a week and all three offer "organic produce". This is 9b, Sunset 15-16, I'm not sure which, but it's lovely. I had to leave a LOT behind and am still repotting things here. I'd never used 24 cuft of potting soil at home before in one sitting. I have now. For the first time in nearly twenty years, I'm running short of cans and have to track down a local source! They used to roll out of my sleeves before. I did manage to get all the seeds planted today, which is a relief. I think it's going to be a while before I can take on any more, thanks. There is a LOT of physical grading and tree removal before anything is actually put IN to the ground, so for the foreseeable future, it will have to be one ginormous pot ghetto.

The closer shot is of the Fedtschenkoana and Hugonis seedlings I've repotted. The other are the rest of the pots, ranging from quarts to fifteen gallons. It isn't "hot" here in comparison to the San Fernando Valley, but the sun is quite a bit more intense and there is usually an ocean breeze which has a tendency to dry things out rather quickly. So far there is a little mildew and just a touch of rust on susceptible types. Otherwise they are amazingly clean with no treatments of any kind. That's a gorgeous, enormous Ceanothus peaking over the fence in the background. It appears to be setting another flush of bloom now the first is fading. It's an interesting climate!

LOL! It's worse than my earlier incarnation and promises to become even worse over the next year... I want open ground for expansion of roots and I want it NOW! LOL! I have a bunch of climbers and I finally have fences and walls I can get to upon which to plant them, and I can't, yet!

My pot ghetto currently has a lot more weeds in it. :-(
My first year here, I found that, come June, pots needed watering twice daily. I threw the whole idea of planning a garden out the window and just started sticking stuff into random pockets in the ground in hopes the soil would be moister than the air...
It's not one of my better garden compositions, to say the least...

Well Kim, it looks like you have a bit more flat space and that gravel area would be the perfect footing for the infamous pot ghetto. Your old site did not seem all that pot friendly, although I realize the rodents did not give you much choice. This sun has been murder here also, with the new seedling (babies) desiccating faster than they can take up moisture. Your raised bed system (I assume you had to rebuild?) sounds so good right now, and may be what is needed for these newer, hotter blasts of unmitigated sun. I used to get a lot of fog in the springtime but there has not been one foggy day yet with all this heat. I believe I am in a 10a zone, high on a windy hill. Wind with heat is not a great combo. Good luck in your new setting.

There is a bit more level space, yes, and there are many vertical surfaces to use for climbers, which were totally lacking previously. Fortunately, we are still receiving cold nights, often with fog and every morning the lawns, cars and other horizontal surfaces are soaking wet. I haven't run the irrigation here since we occupied the house and I had the lawns scalped nearly to the soil surface in hopes of that helping to get control of the blamed fleas, yet the grass is growing back in green, even though there has been no rain and I haven't watered it. Yes ma'am, I had to rebuild the seed tables, and made a few streamlines to them. I've posted them to my blog here. http://pushingtheroseenvelope.blogspot.com/
