When we purchased this unusual form with it's cool edge, Dan, as he always does, wrote down the parentage for us. The pod parent is Dan's own introduction, CHICKEN ON THE RUN....the father was unknown....or as Dan wrote "UNK". He made it easy for me to come up with a garden name....we call this one "UNCLE CHICKEN".
Look closely and you can see that these blooms are all wearing "protection". I pollenated them when there was a threat of rain and wanted to protect them from the pollen being washed away. As I write this "Uncle Chicken" is growing pods from RED SKELETONS and PRIMAL SCREAM.
When Dan dug this one from the seedling field, he accidently got a sibling that was growing too close. When we realized we had two for the price of one, the sibling became "AUNT CLUCK". [pictured below]
