Hybridizer's Comment: Easily pod and pollen fertile with most other 24 chromosome diploid beardeds. Produces variable offspring. 'Clown Pants' has never bloomed in the Fall (anywhere that I'm aware of), but often does send up repeat stalks several weeks after the main flush is finished. It has produced some offspring that do bloom in the Fall, including 'Easy Smile' and 'Cricket Song'.
