This is just outside the ratio required to be a spider type.

So nice! You have quite a lot of good parents to use in hybridizing Wylie! How many registered ones do you have?

There are currently 75 registered, but that number keeps going up.
This one has already been torn apart by the wind we are having today (30 - 50 kph). I did have several new openings, but they were destroyed by the time I got out there. I cut back my windbreak trees this year so I would get more sun, so there are a few wind problems as the seasons change. Almost all of my named plants are rebloomers so I can get flowers when the wind isn't blowing.

Very nice :-)
Do you have American Revolution Wylie? or is this from seed you bought, the reason I ask is I bought what I thought was American Revolution years ago and never sure if its a right plant, there seems to be 2 different forms of it, one more spidery? mine looks quite like the last picture on Tinkers, wondered what yours was like ?

This is from seed. It was crossed with a large cascade type, so it almost looks like a spider.
If you wander around the photos on Tinkers, there is a wide variation for some of them. I pick the ugliest one and use that as a guide to what I would get. For example, we are both having problems with Eight Miles High. Mine is a toothless wonder... better this year than last, but still toothless.
