I've been enjoying this lovely little gem of a species for the past few days. It is about as "yellow", as a flower can get! I almost missed it bloomimg in my basement "jungle"!

The pink is more prominent with cooler weather and brighter lighting! Sometimes mine appear to be almost completely pink, just depends on the conditions when it blooms!

Oh and BTW, there is an almost pure yellow specie that has been been recollected that was thought to be extinct... I cant say much about it other than it is absolutely yellow, much more so than H. evansiae!

Shortly there will be a book published by a botanist in Bolivia that is re-evaluating the genera. I wish I could show you guys the pictures, it's incredible! Hopefully if all goes according to plan the book will be published at the end of the year and the pictures will be released!

It's lovely, Jim. I especially like how, in your photos, it looks like it's glowing.

My current growing situation is too cold for this one, I believe, but, when I move (this spring), it goes to the top of the want list.

Good job Jim. I've noticed my H.e. showing scapes. Kristi, It's a recent purchase from Joshua's.
Josh, like many folks I'm interested in yellow Hippeastrum. I've made several crosses between tangarine orange and 'Yellow Pioneer', and orange and 'Lemon Lime'. None came out darker yellow. All sorts on mongrel mixed paterns. One of the few plants I'm saving room for is the Yellow Crinum from OZ. Any word on availability at a reasonable price?

Hi Jim, I just saw your photos, do you have any seeds to this beautiful yellow hippeastrum? I am very desperate to get seeds to a yellow like this can you help? Do you know anyone else who may have seeds? Please contact me at couturecol@adam.com.au
