Hi Arif!

I just sent you an email.

I just did updated my Yellow Hippeastum album. The varieties I posted here are what I think are really yellows. They could be cream yellow and true yellow. I did not include pics of the yellow green ones in this album.

Sighhhh...So many things to do and so little time.

Enjoy!!!

Thanks Maria, these pictures are wonderfull, I also didn't know that such clear yellow colours existed within the Hippeastrum genus. Are these offsprings of yellow species?

Yes they are Carl. These are hybrids with possibly one or both the parents or grandparents being one of the yellow species.

Hello Maria,
At 77 I had brought my Amaryllis programme, almost to a halt. Your albums have infused me with a new inspiration. I have started a re-organising programme. Now my first priority is to get hold of some real yellows.
Sarmad saeed, Include me in your search for Kilber.

Hi Maria, again very nice.

What made you want to collect yellows? Are you trying to get a better colour yellow with targeted breeding or do you just like yellow?

Hi,
Last year Maria sent me about a dozen seeds in an envelope; I was delighted I sowed them immediately. Although it had become rather hot, to my surprise 10 sprouted and seedlings are doing well.
Maria; I would be grateful if you send me more seeds of your yellows (a request in advance).

Dan...Most true yellows are small flowered. They are very pretty with dainty blooms. I am trying to work on them and hopefully produce a bigger flowered yellow someday.

ARIF...Am glad that your seeds have germinated well. I am not surprised that they did in your hot weather. Most yellows are warm temp. growers. They take a looooong winter sleep and only wake up once the temps are warm enough. Usually that would be late spring/early summer here in my growing area.

Will take note of your request. Yellows are very hard to breed. They are very very picky with their partners. If they do accept pollens, they only produce so much seeds. Their pollens are also not readily accepted by others. My pollination attempts last season had like 80-90% failures. These are mostly attempts of crossing them with other yellows and not selfed. I find it useless to self them as my aim was to produce bigger flowered yellows or improve on the intensity of the yellow color.

A pretty frilled petaled yellow. Enjoy!!!

Hi Maria
On the right is the pot of your seedlings besides pot of my miniature yellows. You are right last year their selfing and inter crossing was a failure.

Once I had a miniature yellow hippeastrum, from the forum I learnt it has mosaic virus. I was advised to destroy it, which I did and lament even today. The progeny having the same leave markings is with me for the last 7 years.

Jack.., what about all the yellows currently being offered by Komoriya on eBay? Look at the photos posted under the Komoriya heading and see what you think. Guess it depends how deep a yellow you want. There are other readily available yellows...Lemon Star, H. Evansae, and others.

ARIF...How time flies! Great to see your seedlings growing so good and hope they flower for you soon. Hopefully they'll have yellow flowers too!

All of my yellow amaryllis are bought from commercially produced stocks. To see is to believe I guess... :-)

You all have a good week ahead!!!

Thanks Kristi! Give your Komoriya bulbs lots of TLC and learn how they would thrive in your growing practises and conditions. These varieties are bred for their "unique" flowers and not for vigor and performance like the Dutch varieties.
