Unusual First Time Bloomer
« on: June 11, 2011, 00:47:47 »
Here is a compact miniata plant that is blooming right now, during a very hot heat wave.  It is a first time bloomer with very interesting flowers.  The colors are dark caramel peach and green.  I am hoping that the plant is going to have the same flowers again next year.  I have used Charls Green and Hirao pollens on a couple of flowers.

Looks very interesting, LT. Do the flowers open up? I see some have already flowered? Hope it is compatible to Group 2's?

Peter,

I am told by a very knowledgeable member that it is a phyllody bloom resulting from extreme fluctuating temperature.  So will the flowers be orange next year?  We are wondering if the phyllody is an inheritable trait?  The previous buds remained in the same stage for about 3 weeks before dropped off the plant.  There is little pollen but apparently, the seed pods are developing.
