FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS X GET JIGGY

FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS X BOUNDLESS BEAUTY

From year one this seedling was "dubbed" Buds Galore  which never changed, no matter what the climate for the year, extreme rain, or extreme heat, or extreme drought-it didn't matter, this plant just wanted to bloom its "little" heart out.


So when it became prudent to register it, Buds Galore's name was changed to FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS, indictative of my early beginnings in hybridizing, some very fruitful, some not. In this case, with this plant, definitely it has FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS.

We are anxiously awaiting over 500 seeds to bloom next summer or the next because my son wanted to try a very long cross with it bred to GET JIGGY. Since FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS is out of MYSTICAL RAINBOW X TRULY ANGELIC we are expecting some great patterns.  

The stats that I registered are less than we have experienced with FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS because I lost all my data on my computer, so I put down the earliest stats that I had which were
29 buds, 4 way branching...but I remember counting up to 39 buds...most likely the year of THE RAIN (2010)! 

FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS has  blue rose tones with a hint of a patterned watermark. I have one seedling out of FRUITFUL BEGINNINGS X BOUNDLESS BEAUTY  and the pattern is very visable, along with a beautiful double edge and extremely ruffled form. It will be the last two pics on this page.
