These are photos of plants that resulted from crosses I did in the spring of 04.

Pat, these are beautiful!

The first cross looks a lot like my H. papilio x H. reticulatum, by any chance, is that your cross too?

Do you know the parentage of all of these?

Pat, great job! I especially love the 5th bloom (in front of all that green grass). Lovely flowers!

Thank you for showing!
I like the one with these inclined flowers in intense red very much, too. If I did not know better, as that you created it by pollinating "Red Lion" with H.papilio (my memory is very clear, on THIS occasion), then I would rather be inclined to take it for a hybrid with "Reggae" *g*! Do you know the parentage of the others?

Pat your pictures are absolutely fantastic! :) I must get a hold of more blooming papilio!

How is your patch/group of papilio doing is it still thriving? How about the one Papilio you mounted?

Sorry to bombard you with questions but I know your papilio must be doing well to get so many wonderful crosses with them.

The SECOND one with the multiple funnel (trumpet) shaped florets, should be worth to be subjected to "commercial production" - How many flowers per umbel???

Thanks y'all
The 1st and 4th is Lemon Lime on Pap
2nd and Last are H. johnsonii on Pap
3rd I'm not sure
5th Hans Your quote is correct, but my statement on parentage is not. I must correct the parentage on that cross to H. papilio on H. aulicum. It remains my favorite thus far. Though not especially floriforus I consider the color, markings and presentation special. This winter I will move this plant and offsets into a deep sphagnum basket as both its parents grow well for me epiphytically. And, I tend to kill some with too much water.

Pat, these are so pretty. I am now starting out to collect some colors. I just found out a site on internet with %30 off but you don't get your bulbs until middle of October.
But your cross are beautiful......

Again, many thanks y'all.

Hey Donna.. Betty Jack is my late mother who got me started in growing gardens.

Like others, I am interested in recording hybrids. One though I had was: listing by detail discription and photos to the IBS website Gallery. Any thoughts??
