My Selected Hybrid Rhododendron Seedlings


 

My general plan of action is to grow seedling hybrid rhododendrons in a field and, as they bloom, to select plants that show promise and transplant them to the display garden and watch them. These are selected seedlings. After some time, if a selected seedling seems to be particularly good, I’ll number it with a consecutive number with the prefix TT  (last 2 letters of my last name) and propagate a few, just in case the original plant dies. Over time, many of these numbered seedlings turn out not to be as good as I originally thought and they are discarded. You will notice large gaps in the consecutive numbering of the current list of numbered hybrids. Sometimes I will number a seedling right from the field row if it seems really special.

I have changed my plans to distribute not only my hybrids but any all-ready named plants to rhododendron enthusiasts. We now have a wonderful way to easily and cheaply propagate rhododendrons at Van Veen Nurseries in Portland, Oregon. They will custom root rhododendrons for you for $2.00-$3.00 a cutting plus postage. I will send a cutting of any plant you see on my web site to them and thy will root it and send it (and the bill) directly to you. Please follow this proceedure: Call or e-mail ths nursery and confirm what you want to do. E-mail me and tell me what cuttings you want sent. Cuttings are usually rooted from August to November or early December. I will send the cuttings to them and e-mail you what cuttings I have  sent and ask you to reimburse the postage for the cuttings. Remember that most of the plants are young and only a small number of cuttings can be taken in a year. For active members of the New York Chapter, I will root a cutting over the winter myself and give it to the member in the spring as a gift.

If a plant does well in your garden over the ensuing years, and you think it is worth naming and registering, you are welcome to do so. If I register any of my seedlings, I’ll inform everyone via this web site so the same plant is not registered with different names by two people. I have been able to include pictures of a few of my hybrids.

I hope to have pictures of all of them in 2017.  Over the years as these numbered seedlings mature some of them become less attractive, usually getting leggy with sparce foliage or are badly damaged over the winter.  Even though I think the flower is very important, plant habit is also important and I won’t continue on with a hybrid with poor plant habit.  For these plants I have added “discontinued” and the year. 9/2015.


Notes on ‘Norman Gill’. You will note that many of the crosses are the results of using pollen from ‘Norman Gill’.  I had noticed that ‘Anna’, a hybrid grown by Halfdan Lem from seed from England, was producing fantastic hybrids on the west coast.  I discovered that it was a hybrid of ‘Norman Gill’ x ‘Jean Marie’.  I decided to obtain a budded plant of ‘Norman Gill’ and use it in my hybridizing.  Not being very smart, I never looked up to see the color of ‘Norman Gill’ and when I received the plant, I didn’t take notice of the flower color!!!  The plant I received could not have been ‘Norman Gill’ as all of my hybrids using its pollen turned out red or very deep pink.  Also ‘Norman Gill’ does not produce pollen.  So the question is, what did I get?  I am guessing it was probably ‘Jean Marie’, but I don’t know that.  So everywhere you see the pollen parent is ‘Norman Gill’, it isn’t. It is the mystery plant.  6/12/12.  I have changed all the cross descriptions to “Unknown West Coast Red” but I can’t change the wording under the pictures.  11/21/13


4/6/15  After assessing my seedlings after a very difficult winter (-1 degree F.) I have discarded about 40 numbered plants because of leaf burn, leaf spotting (mainly yellows) or major die back of stems or outright death of the plants.  We had about 15 inches of snow cover during the cold period and that saved all of the plants under the snow and low growing branches that were under the snow.  But those plants with major damage  above the snow line are useless and I will cut them down.  Others that are not so bad I will just not propagate or disperse.  I have also changed the Especially Noteworthy list.


Notes on open growing (leggy) plants.  9/2015.  Quite a few of my hybrids turn into open growing or leggy plants after 7 or so years.  I call these 7 year plants because they are great for 7 years and then turn sour.  Even though the flowers are great the overall look of the plant becomes bad.  These plants I will not propagate nor disperse and the worst I will discard.


mary-guthlein

‘Mary Guthlein’  In the early 70’s I named a rhododendron for my mother in law and my wife’s maiden name, ‘Mary Guthlein’. I gave cuttings to several people but somehow didn’t keep any for myself. The original plant died and I had none, so Werner Brack kindly sent me some cuttings for me to root. I Googled the name and Henk Borsje has a picture of it in his garden in Europe which I have reproduced above. Isn’t it crazy how plants get around? I am going try to find out its parents. (If anyone knows please tell me as I don’t think I have notes that go back that far.)



There are several plants in the listing that I used as seed or pollen  parents that are not registered and you might not be familiar with them.  Here they are in no particular order:

‘Howard Kuhn’ – metternichii v. tsukushiam x (yak#6 x haemaleum)  This is a hybrid developed by Howard Kuhn. It is red and indumented.  Werner Brack kindly sent me some cuttings two years ago and they are rooted.  One little plant has a flower bud!  But buds on tiny plants like that usually do not bloom, but if it does I have several crosses to make next spring.  I don’t know how Howard got red from this cross as only 1/4 of its parents are red and both metternichii and yak are notorious for killing the red color in a cross. (See below for George Woodard’s cross of Annanouri x Howard Kuhn.)  It is red but not indumented.


‘Ananouri’ – A registered Phipps hybrid that is pure red but leggy and not a good doer. Registered as (‘Britannia’ x discolor) but I think it is (‘Britannia’ x ‘Mars’) or ‘Mars’ selfed.  It is so very red that I can’t believe it is half discolor.  Also the plant looks and behaves a lot like ‘Mars’ and Mr. Phipps had both plants and especially ‘Britannia’. It is named after a castle in Scotland.


 

‘Annanouri’ x ‘Howard Kuhn’ plant


Annanouri x Howard Kuhn

Ananouri x Howard Kuhn Truss

‘Ananouri’ x ‘Howard Kuhn’  A George Woodard cross.  I abbreviate this as AN x HK. See above for some info on ‘Howard Kuhn’ and ‘Annanouri’.


Margolit

Margolit

‘Margolit’ –  A Nat Hess plant. Nat told me two stories about this plant at different times. Once he said he made the cross of  ‘Cavalcade’ x Hardy fortunei. ‘Cavalcade’ is ‘Essex Scarlet’ x griersonianum. Then later, he said the seed came from Hafdem Lem and Nat didn’t know its background. (Nat got a lot of seed from Lem.) It is flesh colored, perfect sphere of a truss and hardy to +5 F. It is the Hebrew spelling of Nat’s wife’s first name Margaret. There is a picture of it under “Named Rhododendron Hybrids” too.


‘Woodbench’ – This is an unknown Phipps hybrid growing growing next to a wooden bench in his garden.  Large truss, pink/yellow and very attractive. I thought that I had a plant of it but now I don’t think that I do.  The original plant is gone from the Phipps garden.


Phipps 32 – This is the designation of the Phipps Evaluation Committee for a very good yellow hybrid in the Phipps garden.  It was later registered as ‘Phipps Yellow’.  Mr. Phipps listed it in his stud book as (yellow seedling x ‘Golden Star’). I am guessing that “yellow seedling” is: (Hardgrove Hicks yellow x ‘Naomi’) x ‘Crest’.  Hardgrove didn’t germinate his seed, but rather gave it to Paul Vossburg to germinate and transplant the seedlings into flats over the winter.  Paul would then sell the seedling back to Hardgrove in the spring.  If  Hardgrove didn’t have the money to purchase all of the seedlings, Paul was free to sell them to anyone.  That is how Hicks (a nursery on Long Island and where Paul worked before WWII) got the plants.  Mr. Phipps was a frequent visitor to the Hicks nursery and would have been aware of the Hardgrove seedlings growing there.


‘Bud’s Yellow’– [(‘Inca Gold’ x yak) x wardii 4170] x ‘Dexter Orange’


‘Bob Schill’ – ‘Whitney Orange’ x ‘Golden Star’.  Sometimes called “WOGS”


'Super Nova' x 'Very Berry' GW

‘Super Nova’ x ‘Very Berry’ GW

Super Nova x Very Berry GW Plant

Super Nova x Very Berry GW Plant

‘Super Nova’ x ‘Very Berry’  This is a George Woodard hybrid.  It must be a tetraploid as both parents are.  It is VERY striking and open growing. This might be the first tetraploid hybridized on the East Coast.


Peter Faulk x Red Crown

Peter Faulk x Red Crown

‘Peter Faulk’ x ‘Red Crown’ A George Woodard cross that I have used frequently.  It is very impressive in the garden.



Here is the list of my numbered hybrids: (A  “***”  in front of the number indicates a plant that I think is especially noteworthy.)

degyak#1

degronianum PF x yak Exbury #1  Selected for foliage

I have several plants of this cross that are about 35 years old and I have selected five of them as particularly beautiful foliage plants.  Their flowers are the usual light pink fading to white.


degronianum PF x yak Exbury #2

degronianum PF x yak Exbury #2 (See note above.)  This one seems to be more compact growing that #1. Beautiful foliage.


degronianum PF x yak Exbury #3 is selected for foliage & plant habit.  #4 & 5 for profuse blooming.


TT1

TT1

TT1 – This is not my seedling. In 1964, Don Hardgrove decided to leave Long Island and move to Montana to run a hunting lodge there. He sold almost all of his rhododendrons to a New Jersey nurseryman named Ted Kordus. He did sell about 20 of his most selected and named plants to members of the NY & Conn. chapters of the ARS. Sid Burns told me about this, and his desire to purchase many of the selected plants. I traveled to the Hardgrove garden in May, just to see it before its break-up. The garden was about a half acre in size with tall oaks giving shade.Way off in a corner I saw a good yellow with a perfect truss. The plant was only 18″ high. I told Sid about the plant and he asked Don about it. Don had forgotten he even had the plant and as a little reward gave me the plant together with two rooted cuttings of it, saying that I should name it. I’ve grown it on all these years (the original plant died). The truss is a perfect sphere, 7 lobes, with a top flower and is a good yellow (the color is much better than in the picture). It almost never sets seed. I was able to use it once in a hybrid, see TT145. (TT111 is an open pollenated seedling from it.) It’s enormous drawback is its plant habit. It is very leggy holding its leaves only one year. The flower will impress you. It roots very easily. There are some plants in the Mass. Chapter and I would be interested in learning how hardy it is for them. It is perfectly hardy for me, but that is not saying much. The plant was from a batch of 1954 seedlings (seed batch #152) of ‘Painted Star’ open pollenated. ‘Painted Star’ is ‘Meadowbrook’ x ‘Griercpy’. I am assuming that ‘Griercpy’  is griersonianum x campylocarpum. Since Don had a large number of yellow rhododendrons in his garden, I assume the pollen came from one of these as I don’t know how else he could have gotten such a yellow hybrid. Which yellow the pollen came from is up for conjecture, but I assume it was hardy fortunei x (dichroanthum x wardii) as he also had a lot of these in the garden.


TT10 = 'Caroline' x (Hardy Fortunei x 'Loderi King George')

TT10 = ‘Caroline’ x (Hardy Fortunei x ‘Loderi King George’)

TT10 – Cross 64-8 ‘Caroline’ x (hardy fortunei x ‘Loderei King George’) Pollen from Hardgrove plant. Seedling is mauve/pink, large flowers and fragrant. Major size plant. Discontinued 9/2015


TT45 {(maximum x haematodes) x 'Firemusic'} x ?.

TT45 {(maximum x haematodes) x ‘Firemusic’} x ?.

 

TT45 – Cross 64-16 {(maximum x haematodes) x ‘Firemusic’} x ?. Open pollenated in Don Hardgrove’s garden in the spring of 1964. Seed picked off the plant Sid Burns purchased from Hardgrove. ‘Firemusic’ is ‘Venator’ x dichroanthum. Seedling is white with pink/red picotee on the edge of the flower. Smallish flowers. Original plant was  leggy but rooted cuttings grow into good looking plants until age 10, then it begins to open up. Sterile with no pollen.  Flower buds are quite round and red color. Seven lobes to the flower.   2014: I picked two enormous seed pods off this and planted the seed. I have  about 50 seedlings as of 6/2015so I guess it not sterile.


TT52 - yak x fortunei?

TT52 – yak x fortune?

TT52 = ‘Jean Marie de Montague’ x (‘Glass White’ x orbiculare) Seed from ARS seed Exchange #67/305. I don’t believe parents. Looks like a yak hybrid. Dense growing, white flower, not much different from many other yak hybrids.  5/7/16: Covered with flowers, very impressive.


TT60 – 72-58 ‘Mars’ x ‘Gill’s Crimson’. Very red flowers, but leggy. Flowers are small. Blooms quite early in the spring. Plant is 7′ high and is interesting covered with tufts of red, but is not worth propagating.


TT64 = 'Anne Hardgrove' x Yak

TT64 = ‘Anne Hardgrove’ x Yak

TT64 – ‘Anne Hardgrove’ x yakushimanum. ‘Anne Hardgrove’ is ‘C.P. Raffill x ‘Moser’s Maroon’. Seedling picked up the legginess from ‘Anne Hardgrove’ but does hold its leaves 4 years. Pink flowers. ‘Anne Hardgrove’ blooms very late in the season. When Sid Burns saw my seedlings, he decided to force ‘Anne Hardgrove’ to bloom early in his greenhouse and use yakushimanum as the seed parent to see if the seed parent affected the offspring. It did.   Discontinued 9/2015. See TT99 for a much better plant.


TT68 – Cross 71-24  ‘Helen Everitt’ x ‘Nestucca’. Large white truss.


TT71 'Anne Hardgrove' x yakushimanum

TT71 ‘Anne Hardgrove’ x yakushimanum

TT71 – ‘Anne Hardgrove’ x yakushimanum. (See TT64 and TT 99 which are sister seedlings.) This is quite a lovely plant when it first blooms. It is more or  less compact with vivid salmon flowers. Then  it fades all the way to white by the time it is finished. Some people thank that is great. Ralph Potente named this plant in honor of his wife, ‘Jean Potente’. Small truss. 4/2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015.  See TT99 for a much better plant.


TT76 = Mars x Gill's Crimson

TT76 = Mars x Gill’s Crimson

TT76 –  Cross 72-58 ‘Mars’ x ‘Gill’s Crimson’.   Sister seedling of TT77 and TT60. The earliest to bloom but not worth propagating.


TT77 – Cross 72-58 ‘Mars’ x ‘Gill’s Crimson’. Last to bloom. See TT76 and TT60. The flower is very similar to TT76 except TT77 blooms 8 or 9 days later than TT76. Not worth propagating.


TT78 Meadowbrook x (Jean Marie x Grosclaude)

TT78 Meadowbrook x (Jean Marie x Grosclaude)

TT78 – ‘Meadowbrook’ x (‘Jean Marie de Montague’ x ‘Grosclaude’) Best new hybrid, 1984 ARS Show. Large red truss with large caylix, almost hose-in-hose. I’ve used it frequently in hybridizing. Leggy plant. Color is better than the picture indicates. Open growing plant.


TT80 – strigillosum x metternichii. I think I received the seed from Jack Rosenthal. He was very interested in strigillosum. This is quite red. The original plant is dead but I have a few rooted cuttings that have not yet bloomed.

TT81 = (adenopodum x metternichii) x degronianum AE

TT81 = (adenopodum x metternichii) x degronianum AE

TT81 – Cross 68-3 (adenopodum x metternichii) x degronianum AE.  Sid Burns had the seed parent from Joe Gable. I had gotten the pollen parent from the West Coast as very special favor from someone, maybe Mrs. Berry. I still have the degronianum AE which is very dwarf, probably 24″ in diameter now.  TT81 is a wonderful, dense, lightly indumented, compact plant that holds it leaves 3 or 4 years and is loaded with quite large, pink flowers early in the spring. It blooms with ‘Taurus’ which kills it for TT81. No one looks at TT81 when you can look at ‘Taurus’!


TT82 = 'Helen Everitt' x pseudochrysanthum

TT82 = ‘Helen Everitt’ x pseudochrysanthum

***TT82 – Cross 74-23 ‘Helen Everitt’ x pseudochrysanthum. Large white flower, strong grower, good looking plant.


TT 83 = (Glass White x fabia) x Phipps 32

TT 83 = (Glass White x fabia) x Phipps 32

TT83 – Cross 81-3 (‘Glass White’ x ‘Fabia’) x Phipps 32. The seed plant was one of the basic crosses Hardgrove made and has a lot more color than you would expect but does have a relatively small flower. I have not noticed it flower lately so I can’t comment other than to say that I originally said it was very yellow.  ‘Glass White’ is a white form of catawbiense that has no mauve tint nor will it pass the mauve tint on to progeny.  2015 Winter damage and leggy growth, Discontinued 9/2015


TT86 = 'Scintillation' x 'Sappho'

TT86 = ‘Scintillation’ x ‘Sappho’

TT86 – ‘Scintillation’ x ‘Sappho’. Leggy with a lovely blotched flower. Light mauve with blotch. Roots easily. See also TT98, sister seedling.  TT98 is much more impressive. 2014: I cut TT86  down as the plant became ugly and took up an enormous amount of space.


TT87 Degronianum PF x Nestucca

TT87 Degronianum PF x Nestucca

TT87 – degronianum PF x ‘Nestucca’. (“PF” stands for Planting Fields).  The degronianum is the plant purchased from Don Hardrove in 1964 and is still growing at Planting Fields. Globose white flower in a tight truss. Good foliage and good plant habit. Light indumentum. Missing top flower in truss. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth, discard Discontinued 9/2015


TT89 – ‘Mars’ x ‘Jean Marie de Montague’. Bob Furman mentioned to me that this cross gave good reds, so I decided to try it.  He was right! Several seedlings of the cross turned out to be great reds. I’ve numbered a couple. See alsoTT158,  TT100 & TT97, sister seedlings.  (*** dropped 11/13) 5/25/16 Very dark red.  Secxond place in Breeders Cup class in NY show 2017.


TT90 – ‘Vulcan’s Flame’ x (yakushimanum x ‘Mars’). ARS seed exchange seed lot# 75-534. Perfect pink truss.  Discontinued 9/2015


TT91 – This is an original Dexter plant that Sam Everitt had from Dexter.  He gave cuttings of it to Nat Hess and Sid Burns and I got a cutting from Sid. Very fragrant light pink with a griffithianum look to the truss with a turned-back top petal. I informally call it ‘Sam Everitt’ and used it in several hybrids. Gets petal blight.  Never registered.


TT92 = 'Little Susie Q'

TT92 = ‘Little Susie Q’

***TT92 – Probably (‘Scintillation’ x ‘Inamoratta’) x Hardgrove yellow. A beautiful plant all year round with cream flowers.  Named by someone else ‘Little Susie Q’.  I don’t know where they got the “Little” from as it is anything  but little.  You take a chance when someone else names one of your plants.


TT95 = yakushimanum Exbury x degronianum Planting Fields

TT95 = yakushimanum Exbury x degronianum Planting Fields

TT95 – yakushimanum Exbury x degronianum Planting Fields. I have many plants of this cross and I numbered this clone when I first saw it because of the foliage, which is great and the perfect white truss. I have at least five other plants from this cross that could be numbered but I don’t think the world needs another yak-like white rhododendron. 8/2015:  I have 5 others which I have designated yakdeg#1, 2,3,4 & 5.  They are all magnificent foliage plants.  #4 & 5 have many flower buds for 2017.


TT96 -

TT96 –

TT96 – I am not sure of the parents. I have one tag on the plant that says ‘Annanouri’ open pollinated and another that says ‘C.P.Raffill’ x ‘Moser’s Maroon’ from H. Lem that I got from Nat Hess. All I can say is that it sure is red. To make things more interesting, Hardgrove also made the ‘C.P.Raffill’ x Moser’s Maroon’ cross (one was named ‘Anne Hardgrove’) and had a lot of seedlings of the cross and Nat Hess was friendly with Hardgrove. Leggy growth habit.  I have used it in hybridizing for red flowers.  Late bloomer.  2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015


TT97 Mars x Jean Marie

TT97 Mars x Jean Marie

TT97 – ‘Mars’ x ‘The Honorable Jean Marie de Montague’. I keep forgetting to put “The Honorable” in front of “Jean Marie etc” so forgive me. See also sister seedlings TT89, TT100 and  TT158. All nice reds.  TT97 is difficult to root and is open growing, but it is sure red. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015


TT97 - Mars x Jean Marie

TT98 – ‘Scintillation’ x ‘Sappho’

TT98 = 'Scintillation' x 'Sappho'

TT98 = ‘Scintillation’ x ‘Sappho’

TT98 – ‘Scintillation’ x ‘Sappho’. See also TT86 a sister seedling. TT98 is, to my eye, a nicer color flower, still with a blotch.  Enormous flower on an enormous plant.  Not for the small garden.  Very vigorous grower.  Won Breeders Cup at the NY Chapter show on 5/21/2017


TT99 - Anne Hardgrove x yak

TT99 – Anne Hardgrove x yak

***TT99 – ‘Anne Hardgrove’ x yakushumanum.  Opens hot pink and fades to light pink.  Good looking foliage. 6/2015  Bloomed first week in June and was spectacular. (‘Anne Hardgrove’ is a very late bloomer.) *** added.


TT 100 = 'Mars' x 'The Honorable Jean Marie de Montague'

TT 100 = ‘Mars’ x ‘The Honorable Jean Marie de Montague’

TT100 – ‘Mars’ x ‘The Honorable Jean Marie de Montague’. The last of this cross to be numbered. As with the others, a very nice red. See also TT97 and TT89. *** removed 5/13 as it only holds 1 year’s leaves and is getting leggy.  Discontinued 9/2015   5/25/16  Small plants look good.  Good red color.


TT101 'Schlaijker Yellow' x 'Phipps 32'

TT101 ‘Schlaijker Yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’

TT101 – Cross 81-2  ‘Schlaijer Yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’.  ‘Schlaijker Yellow’ is a yellow seedling Dorothy Schlaijker purchased from Hardgrove. Hardgrove called it his deepest yellow and that is probably true.  It suffers from a lax truss with no top flower in the truss.  But for color, it is a very strong yellow.  Hardgrove saw this in 1958 and here, 50 years later, and we don’t have a yellow that is any stronger shade of yellow.  It was Hardgrove’s selection H62-3: hardy fortunei x (wardii x dichroanthum).  See also TT103 and TT104, sister seedlings. Picture shows truss form.  Actual color is much better than shown. See description of ‘Phipps 32’ at beginning of this section.  5/25/16  Not much, could discard.


TT102 = Yaku Dawn x strigillosom

TT102 = Yaku Dawn x strigillosom

TT102 – Cross 72-67 ‘Yaku Dawn’ x strigillosum. Seed from Jack Rosenthal. Deep pink, open growing.  Not 100% sure of parents.


TT103 – Cross  81-2   ‘Schlaijker Yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’ Good yellow, leggy. Good truss, large flower, medium yellow.  See also TT101 and TT104,  sister seedlings.


TT104 – ‘Schlaijker Yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’. Good yellow with a large flower. I used this in many crosses but now it is gone from the garden. See Named Hybrids for info about the parents.


Jeanne Artois

‘Jeanne Artois’ growing in Belgium

Jeanne Artois, Plant

‘Jeanne Artois’, Plant growing in Belgium

TT105 – Cross 81-4:  71-13 x ‘Phipps 32’.
71-13 = (‘Scintillation’ x ‘Inamorata’) x Hardgrove yellow.
Hardgrove Yellow = probably hardy fortunei x (dichroanthum x wardii).

Not a bad yellow, but leggy. Original plant dead but I have a couple of rooted cuttings from it.

10/2016:  I just learned that a sister seedling was grown and named ‘ Jeanne Artois’ in Belgium. See above for picture of truss and plant growing in Arboretum Wespelaar, Belgium.  If you want to see more pictures type in this URL:
http://www.arboretumwespelaar.be/Default.aspx?WPID=264&L=E&DNa=Rhododendron+%27Jeanne+Artois%2″>


TT111 = TT1 open pollenated

TT111 = TT1 open pollenated

TT111 – TT1 open pollenated.  One of the very few seedlings from TT1. Good color yellow, large flower  but leggy.


TT113 – Pink Carolina x Paul’s Pink Muchronulatum open pollenated. Semi deciduous with red/purple flowers. Roots easily. Somewhat attractive in early spring.


TT115 – GiGi x Debutant. Debutant is ‘Mars x yak’ unregistered. Luminous pink, major size plant.


TT116= ('Jean Marie' x yak) x 'Grand Slam'

TT116= (‘Jean Marie’ x yak) x ‘Grand Slam’

TT116 – (‘Jean Marie’ x yak) x ‘Grand Slam’. Only one seed from this cross germanated. Looks like a polyploid. Pink.  Looks like ‘Trudy Webster’ but is definately a seedling. The seed parent is a triploid and the pollen parent a tetraploid. 10/3/16: John & Sally Perkins  had this tested and it turns out to be a pentaploid.  3n x 4n> 5n.  How do you think that happened? (Maybe the 3n produced an unreduced 3n gamet and the tetraploid produced a reduced 2n gamet.)


TT117

***TT117 – ‘Apricot Fantasy’ x ‘Martha Phipps’. ‘Apricot Fantasy’ = ‘Hotei’ x ‘Brandt’s Tropicana’.  Very strong yellow. One of my best yellows. A little open growing. Sister of TT120 & TT122. *** added 5/15


TT118 = TT105 x TT104

***TT118 = TT105 x TT104

***TT118 – TT105 x TT104 = (‘Schlaijker yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’) x (‘Mary Guthlein’ x ‘Phipps 32’). Cross 91-59. Very large yellow. More yellow than the picture shows. Open growing.  *** removed 5/2014. *** added 5/2016


TT119= Mrs. Howard Phipps x Phipps 51

TT119= Mrs. Howard Phipps x Phipps 51

 a

TT119 – ‘Mrs. Howard Phipps’ x Phipps 51. A very strong, vigerous plant with a large white truss.  Phipps 51 has probably the largest truss of the Phipps hybrids and ‘Mrs. Howard Phipps’ is a very strong plant with a hot pink flower. Original plant got smacked by the 2010 drought. Color in photo is not correct. 2/2015.. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015. It was spectacular in 2017.


TT120 – Apricot Fantasy x Martha Phipps. Sister of TT117 & TT122. Large apricot hose-in-hose flower.  Discontinued 9/2015


TT121 – Anne Hardgrove x TT97. Large red flower. 5/13 especially nice. ***added 5/13  2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015


TT122 Apricot Fantasy x Martha Phipps

TT122 Apricot Fantasy x Martha Phipps

TT122 – ‘Apricot Fantasy’ x ‘Martha Phipps’.  Yellow. Sister of TT117 & TT120. Large flower, good color. Gets leggy as it ages. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015


TT123= TT104 x TT105

TT123= TT104 x TT105

TT123-  TT104 x TT105  = (‘Schlaijker yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’) x (‘Mary Guthlein’ x ‘Phipps 32’). Very large velvety yellow flower. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015


TT124 = 'Margolit' x 'Phipps 32'

TT124 = ‘Margolit’ x ‘Phipps 32’

TT124 – ‘Margolit’ x ‘Phipps 32’. Round truss, good yellow. Getting leggy.


TT126= TT105 x TT104

TT126= TT105 x TT104

TT126 – TT105 x TT104. = (‘Schlaijker yellow’ x ‘Phipps 32’) x (‘Mary Guthlein’ x ‘Phipps 32’). Good yellow vigorous plant. Flower color is better than picture. 2015 Winter damage and leggy growth,  Discontinued 9/2015.   5/26/16 Very good, no blast, no burn, large truss, medium yellow.


TT127 ‘Apricot Fantasy’ x ‘Janet Blair’  I have not seen it in several years but should be quite good.


TT129 – TT97 x Unknown West Coast Red.    Sharp pink.


TT131=TT97 x West Coast Red
