Red Dog OP 12 seedlings

I have 4 of these surviving. They were numbered by the darkness of the petiole with #1 being the darkest. Of course they decided to change color this year and #2 is now the darkest but #1 has the darkest scapes but hasn't opened its flowers yet.
#3 decided to go with lateral scapes while #1 and #2 are upright. I haven't seen scapes on #4 yet.

Long lateral scapes on #3.

#3 has a twist at the end of the leaf.

#3 has a white back.

I think #3 has the best flower.

Red Dog OP 12 V-1 opened its flowers today. It has three lateral scapes. The flowers opened with a "bang" - one scape has four opened flowers while the other two scapes have three flowers each. The flowers don't have the color of the other two versions but they look nice to me. There is a fourth version starting to put up a scape.
