Hi everyone.

Jaga - Did you also do the reverse cross as well? Why I ask is that we could test the theory about the pollen parent usually determining the colour of the offspring. I don't see any of the "tiger" marking on your plant using 'Silverado' as the pollen parent and just wondered what would happen if the cross was the other way around.

All the best, Nev.

Nev, we posted at the same time. A good point you raise. This plant was made in 2009. I did the reverse but got no pollination at the time. Tried again 3 years later with some seed resulting but the seedlings have really struggled, will need to find them now as to be honest lost interest in them being any good.

Brilliant Cross Jaga!  Nice rich colours and I do love the "teeth". I also wonder what happened to the stripes.

As for a name: how about "Jags Nightwatch"?  Warm colours like the Rembrandt Painting.

I like your well thought up name choice Conrad. I need to wait for pups but your surname will go on the registration as the namer - hopefully OK by you?
