Imp’s Christmas Wrap (J. Jackson) Single frilled pink pansy, raspberry glitter edge, raspberry fantasy. Dark green, pointed, serrated, pebbled/red back. Miniature
Lollipop Kid (8247) 07/28/1995 (S. Sorano) Semidouble light orchid pansy/dark red-orchid frilled edge. Medium green, ovate, quilted/red back. Semiminiature
There are still gaps in the symmetry on this immature plant, but unless the plant shapes up extremely well at maturity, I won’t be keeping this variety. The reason for that choice is because the bloom is nearly identical to Lollipop Kid, whose symmetry is really great already. I don’t need another plant with the same bloom that won’t shape up as nicely if I choose to enter it in a show. Jury is still out on this one, but for now, it’s not looking too promising.
Tiptop (6646) 6/11/1987 (H. Pittman) Semidouble lavender-pink. Dark green, plain/red back. Semiminiature
Celina Elegance (H. Pittman) Semidouble bright cherry red. Crown variegated foliage. Semiminiature
I repotted several more plants since my last entry, and I put most of them on wicks. Now, I have almost two full shelves of plants that are wicked, and they’re all doing very well. Most of them are beginning to bloom, so I’ll share some new photos next time!
