Topspin and a Few Seedlings

Topspin
Stamile 2006, 11 x 38 inches

Topspin was new last year, and when I first saw it bloom, I didn't care much for it, but after the blooms this year, I am sold on this flower. It is absolutely beautiful, and the large blooms remind me of windmills. I did several crosses with it too, and the plants are inside growing nicely.

I love this one.

Copper colored seedling, at 6 inches, and a
bit odd, I think. Didn't expect to see one this color
from the cross. In the garden, it has a glowing
appearance, but that does not show up in this photo.

Here's a seedling that needs a name that includes
butterfly or dragonfly. Also, a tad odd in form.
Very colorful pattern on the petals. So far, the blooms
stay this shape, however, I like it.
