A show pansy cross


This is one seedling from a cross made last year between Tom and Marion,one a self coloured yellow and the other a white belted sort.

The genes always seem to want to bring the plant back to its beginnings and introduce “rays” the bee’s landing strip lights to attract it to the pollen tube for nectar.

The 100 of years the Society has been trying to eliminate these “rays” to meet the FLORIST standards set down even before the Society was formed seem to have been in vain.
