    Roy,
    I'm using it as a parent for all possible coerulea crosses.
    Some are already in progress.

    I think it would well with some of the other splash petal types as well.

    Roy,

    We have a lot of experience with splash petal crosses.
    We avoid to cross splash petal plant with each other.
    As more you cross them as less they open up and as less they get flat.

    Most splash petal hybrids have in their ancestry C. intermedia 'Aquinii'.
    Very few plants open up and flatten out. This comes from the gens of the Aquinii plant.
    Normally if this bad gens are use twice it gets worse. It never get better!
