Sweet ruffles

kaboehm (zone 9a, TX USA)April 15, 2014

Some seedlings (H. Gordie selfs) are blooming. This was a first time bloom with 2 scapes. I was surprised by the ruffles! All the seedlings, thus far, have produced sweet fragranced blooms.

Very beautiful, even with the flavor!

Oleg,
I will measure when I get home. Here are 3 other siblings, each one different!

By best estimation, "Sweet Ruffles" is just 5.25" across and its mostly red/white sib is just over 7".

They're all very pretty and it looks like they have nice strong scapes too!

I agree with Donna and Jesssiann, very pleasant seedlings)
But the interesting thing is that the descendants of Gordian showed pedigree vittatum was undoubtedly in the ancestors. Specifies the target of this the ruffles and flavor!

Congratulations! This is a good result with 4 pretty-shaped non-drooping florets with broad and frilled segments. You must absolutely take into consideration, that you might unknowingly have selected a certain type of flowers, by growing only the "strong" seedlings. It might turn out, that none of these will look similar to the Parent. How many ("strong") siblings do you have?

Dear Hans-Werner,
I think that there are 5 separate bulbs around the tree that have put out offsets. I have many more seedlings in pots, some I am still waiting for blooms. All are growing well, while these bulbs in the ground are absolutely thriving.

I still have 2 original H. Gordie bulbs, but they are growing under screen. I would gladly pay to propagate them if I was sure the results would be virus-free. I would give some of the resulting bulbs away to list friends and sell others (I'm told there would be thousands!). I need to really make some serious inquiries.
