    Default Bl Richard Mueller x L aurea

    This came to bloom 2 days ago. So far, 2 buds opened, 10 more to go. Flowers are smaller than my other Mueller crosses (1.5-2 inches). As you can see, one flower is deformed with 2 joined petals.

    NICE! I added this cross but it has failed to bloom for me as of yet. Thanks for the preview! L aurea is a 2" flower that is why this cross has smaller flowers than some of the other Mueller crosses. I like how the black-eyed Susan effect comes through from the aurea parent

    Oh, it is cute! I like it. Please update us when it does the color shift. 12 Blooms will be just fantastic! Nice!

    Cheers,

    I just love the blending of colors on this. What colors would you say it is? Yellow and... Peach? Coral? I'd say great things come in small packages. And, yes, this is exactly the kind of fused petal I have experienced with my Richard Mueller cross.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    The pictures were taken right before sunset after I got home today, the low soft sun light really brought out the color of the blossom. I am glad that y'all like it. If color changes, I will post an update photo later.
