Completed to date first go around comprehensive (for me) crossing of some of the garden stock to test amiability to crossing and germination. Log list below. Reverses (F x M) are separate entry in log.

The results will be used to filter and focus for next years campaign to further narrow down. Unless my goals pops out of this seasons crosses.

More use of R. xanthina (germinated extremely well last year in test), and other eastern yellow, missed due to slow on draw in getting started. Always next year.

Merveille favoured due to color, and successful germination results from single “Life just Below Zero” cycle.

Emphasis on Helenae x hardy repeating CDN and +/- modern repeaters, to test if potential path for my main goals - however emasculating and pollinating “tiny” floret bloom anthers and stigmas while maintaining focus and care does not rank as “great time” outdoors during peak mosquito season - going test aerosol, v. low pressure (as in old fashion perfume bottle) blanket spraying of floret blooms with crossing pollen next time - not kidding.
