Redback Tavern by First Blush

During the 2016 season I made some crosses with First Blush pollen on Redback Tavern. I planted the seeds in April 2017 and moved one of the seedlings into my front garden late last season. It survived the winter and is putting up a scape.

Flower opened but never fully extended - one petal was struck behind another and had to be separated.

Here are a couple of flowers in August. I made a lot of crosses but none took. There is one pod where the bees helped me.
