Lily Pad Seedling

I showed this one season with its white flowers. It's not as big as last season. It's been in flower for a few days but those flowers were deformed.

The flower head exploded today - I had been worried about deformed flowers earlier but these all look fine now.

Are you going to cross them with anything?
I really like how shiny the Lily Pad seedlings are.

Very nice flower, would be a good start to an improved flower in our hostas. I really like the spider type flowers.

I agree, I think the spiders are really nice, though a bit small usually.

Here I have a Korean Snow x Maraschino Cherry seedling where the flowers are still spidery but getting bigger. The seedlings is a bit shiny, but not as shiny as these, and a pure white edge on a couple leaves but not the whole eye. I'm hoping it is worth sharing a picture next year.

Too, bad. Did you get any seeds that you are going to grow this winter?

I got a lot of crosses using pollen from Dostoyevsky (red flower) - some selfs, a large bunch of Koriyama pods (probably get really dark flowers), a couple of Curly Fries pods (not sure I have viable seeds), a couple of clausa normalis pods (another with probably really dark flowers), a couple of pods on The Perfect Storm (these ought to be interesting), a bunch of pods off a plant I have labeled All Plain Green that is out of Art Wrede's work (it's an "odd" plant because it is plain - no color in the petiole, no white on the back of the leaves, just a boring plant but I'm hoping it will put out red flowers). I got a couple of pods from tsushimensis with Dostoyevsky using what I was calling "old" pollen - the pollen was a couple of days old - Dostoyevsky was done flowering and then I realized I had tsushimensis well into flowering.

I did a lot of crosses with Redback Tavern X First Blush but only got a couple tiny pods - probably no viable seed.
