COSMIC LEGEND

 

 

 SKIN OF MY TEETH X HACKSAW

5.75" X 29"

SEMI-EVERGREEN

 

 

COSMIC LEGEND IS THE FIRST HACKSAW SEEDLING THAT WE FLAGGED.  IT HAS REMAINED ONE OF MY FAVORITES SINCE THEN.  WITH GOOD SUBSTANCE, THE DARK PLUM COLOR STANDS UP WELL TO FULL SUN.  I REALLY ADMIRE COSMIC LEGEND'S FORM.  THE PETALS ARE JUST NARROW ENOUGH TO EXPOSE THE WHITE AND YELLOW TEETH ON THE SEPALS.  WHEN THE WEATHER HEATS UP, THE TEETH WILL SHOW A GOOD DEAL OF CHARTREUSE GREEN.  SEE THE "2020 EXTRAS" PAGE FOR A PICTURE OF A COUPLE OF SCAPES AND A PROMISING SEEDLING FROM IT. FERTILE.

DORMANT

 

 ANOTHER FINE FLOWER FROM RULING SHOGUN.  RULING SHOGUN HAS GIVEN ME SEVERAL QUALITY REDS AND PURPLES TO WORK WITH.  RUBIES AND RUFFLES GOT ITS DARK RED COLORING FROM VELVET THRONE.  SUBSTANCE IS GOOD AND THE COLOR IS WEATHER AND SUN RESISTANT.  IT IS PROVING TO BE A FINE PARENT. I HAVE A COUPLE OF MY BEST REDS YET FROM IT.  I WILL PUT A PICTURE OF ONE OF THEM ON THE "2020 EXTRAS" PAGE. FERTILE  BOTH WAYS AND PODS ARE EASY.  WELL BRANCHED SCAPES PUT THIS ONE OVER THE TOP.
