What happens if I git delete a remote branch that has subbranch that has not been merged to it

I’m getting rid of the development (in purple) branch and having all subbranches branch from master (in teal) and merge to master. development branch is branched from master. If there are sub branches off development that have not been merged yet, will they be able to be merged to master later, after the remote development branch is removed? What is the fate of the leaf (mustard colored) branch.

  • Git add branch on one single directory?
  • How to achieve build pipeline across multiple Jenkins master hosts?
  • Safety of using Git's filter-branch to rewrite if only modifications are to commits which haven't been pushed yet?
  • Windows Aptana SSH Git to private repository - fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly
  • git for mercurial like git-svn
  • Troubles with git and Gemfile.lock
  • On git push I got error: error: invalid protocol: wanted 'old new ref'
  • Local branches show-up on GitHub's “Network” view
  • git push update issue
  • git: remove dead branch after a rebase?
  • Cannot delete a remote branch created unintentionally
  • Visual Studio Team Services says “Task PowerShell failed.” although it didn't
  • One Solution collect form web for “What happens if I git delete a remote branch that has subbranch that has not been merged to it”

    A branch in git is essentially not much more than a pointer to a commit. When you remove a branch you do not remove the commits, so the “subbranch” (not really an accurate term) will be in tact, and will still be mergeable.
