Sibling Rivalry

This post title is apropos for a number of reasons. Summer vacation has seen me breaking up countless wrestling matches between my boys. It has also provided a number of blooms in my seedling patch, which I thought would be fun to share.

Genetics are fascinating. I love seeing blooms from the same seed pod and weighing their similarities and differences!

Tets especially can throw some wild cards.

I loved the color on this one. Halloween Trick x Tequila Mockingbird

How about everyone else?  Any sibling rivalry in your garden this season?  How about brand new plants you want to show off?  Send ’em my way and I’ll post them for you! 🙂
