My gravel weedling "Xiangliu" - 2 main sprouts each with a "large" upright scape and multiple smaller lateral scapes.
I have counted 10 scapes so far.

This one ended up with 12 scapes:

This is the end of the flowers for this one. I have shown some of the earlier flowers.

What's interesting to me in this photo is that the plant is fading out while the very dark plant on the left looks fine. I had been guessing that most of the weedlings in the space were seeds of rectifilia types that had washed down the small slope. That very dark one got me thinking that maybe some Halcyon genes are floating around - Touch of Class and Dax are near this spot.

Just noticed that the two "main" center scapes are fused scapes. That's what causes to flowering clusters on the scape.

I thought most of these had round leaves but I'm seeing some ovals. It's from Elegans or Frances Williams.

Lots of new baskets even for my weedlings if I want to keep them. I have lost 5 named plants in the past week - El Nino, Lil' Abner, Great Arrival, Blue Mammoth, and something else that I can't remember. Just ordered some replacements from Chris.

I showed this one at the end of May when I first noticed it.

It's still coming along. It has a very thick leaf which is "frosted" on the top and bottom.

It finally dawned on me (in the middle of the night) who one of the parents of this plant might be - Korean Snow. It's been bothering me for years trying to guess what would give me a small rippleed leaf on seedlings. Usually I see bigger things. I had been ignoring the fact that I have Korean Snow about 5 feet from this plant.

The flower shape and striping match. I need to get a good photo of the stamen to see if they have different lengths that would show a yingeri heritage.

I have been protecting this one for a few years. I couldn't tell the parentage - there are a few in the area with rippled leaves. But it's blooming for the first time and Kinba is also flowering right next to it so I think that's the pod parent.

Here is the flower head of Kinba - lot of color.

The one above opened a couple of days ago. As soon as I saw the light center streak I thought of longipes latifolia as the pollen "donor". It's flowering nearby at the same time. Some other possibilities are tibae and Red Dragon but I think either of those would add a lot more color to the flower (and be more interesting). But when it comes to weedlings who can tell except the bees.

Looking at the last post - I just noticed that rupifraga is also next to it and the flowers match. So I'm now thinking the pollen came from rupifraga and not longipes latifolia although they are similar.

Continuing with the last post I'm now thinking the pod parent may have been tibae. The leaves are a better fit. I still thinking the pollen was from rupifraga to get that flower color.

And this was the flower head yesterday with 12 flowers open at the same time.
