OT: I found a little bit of color

karyn1(7a)February 24, 2010

I found a few things with color. The first are some hellebores that I cross pollinated. They got seed pods! I have no idea how to tell when they are ripe so I posted on the hellebores forum. This one was crossed with a dark purple variety. I found a desert rose in bloom that I grew from seed. Then I noticed that I have 35 DR seedlings! Think that maybe I went a bit overboard? LOL The last 2 are bromeliads that I completely ignore. I'm surprised they're still alive.

Those are just beautiful.

I don't think we can Hellebores here with our heat.

Those are great Karyn! Will be interesting to see what your cross looks like. I love hellebores, and have some potted up from Edna, but they haven't bloomed again, or yet.
