So since I am pretty much obsessed with Sarrs and only had one flower pop up this season I want to be nosy.
What crosses did you make this year?
I made S. alata x S. 'Matoaka'
S. alata 'Areolata' x S. 'Matoaka'
S. alabamensis ssp. alabamensis x S. 'Matoaka'
S. rubra ssp. gulfensis f. viridescens x S. 'Matoaka'
S. 'Lemon' x S. 'Matoaka'
S. oreophila Open Pollinated
and I've got a bunch of unknown crosses like 200+ seed worth

I had the first 3 pods crack today from S. Appalachain Spring and S. rubra jonesii. The Appalachain Spring pod is an attempeted cross with S. oreophila; the 2 rubra jonesii pods are an attempted cross with Appalachain Spring (backcross). However, mesh got wiped out by weather while they may have been still fertile, so just call them open pollinated, haha.
Still to go are more S. rubra jonesii, Judith Hindle, flava, S. rehderi, and alata x minor, all open pollinated.
bunch of S. leucophylla Hurricane Creek,AL, leucophylla red x HC,AL, flava ornata x flava copper top
True Bugs really Suck
Empty pod after empty pod here.
The 'summer' was so relentlessly cold and wet here, it seems have affected seed production. Worst summer since 1956 here actually. Yuck!
Lots of purp x flava, but then I forgot the seeds in my refrigerator when I moved out of my apartment.....
