I'm thinking that 'Cedric Morris' and 'Phantom' would make a lovely pair.... pink tips and blue tips, so pretty.

Agapanthus seedlings
« Reply #32 on: August 30, 2010, 11:49:11 AM »
Hi,

this seedlings is from OP seed from 'Enigma'.
Enigma is a nice bicolour with basically white flowers shaded blue on the outside.
The most likely male parent is 'ex Johannseburg' - a tall growing blue with large airy panicles.
Mots of the seedlings flowering for the first time this year are variations on this theme.
If any grow to the size of the male parent they should be really nice.

Just one is different which I'll post next,

Regards,

David

Agapanthus 'enigma' x 'windsor grey'
« Reply #33 on: August 30, 2010, 11:56:50 AM »
hi,

the only seedling from 'Enigma' to flower with pale flowers is shown below.
Although the seed is OP, it is almost certainly crossed with 'Windsor Grey' which was flowering at the same time.
Windsor Grey is a lovely 'dove grey' flower and this seedling is almost identical.
The veining is a bit bluer than WG.
The flower head is huge for a first flowering seedling and bodes well for the future!
I'm please with these seedlings and will try a few more. Phantom looks to be setting a nice head this year so look out in three years time.

Regards,

David

Thanks Gail. Planning to visit this area after the DW in October, maybe find some time and can make a visit to Pine Cottage Plants. :D
