Well Oda. Colwell is not much to look at...... but it has produced several outstanding red breeding lines of today. Guided by Alan Moon, Eric Young picked up this plant from Charlesworth's and produced Oda. Petit Port in 1981. From Oda. Petit Port came Oda. Burning Bed, Oda. Susan Preston Richards and Oda. Petit Shine. All three are outstanding with the leader in the hybridizing stakes currently being Oda. Susan Preston Richards. If you research this pedigree you may not understand why I rate Oda. Susan Preston Richards so highly. Because of the registration nonsense, there is a heap of fine hybrids from this parent just waiting to be registered when our new registration system is in place. And a quick glance at the progeny of Oda. Burning Bed turns up Wilsonara John Miller as its most illustrious progeny. It is interesting to note that the first John Miller seedlings were made on the Oda. Burning Bed and they came nearly all reds. However, a remake onto Odcdm. Tribbles 4n has come almost completely patterned. Either way, they have a quality consistency rarely seen in any genus that has been hybridized.
