Quesnelia ?

brom-nutterSeptember 5, 2009

Hi everyone, these two are flowering at present.

They would have to be one of my top 10 favorite broms.

The flower head dries very well and holds the honey comb shape, making them great for dried arrangements.

Just thought I would share - Cheers Richard

Definitely a Quesnelia. Aren't they fantastic color? Could be testudo, quesneliana, or arvensis. I'm not sure exactly how to tell the difference. I think there is a size difference between testudo and arvensis, but light plays a huge difference in size. I'll take a couple of pictures tomorrow and dig out some old ones to show how much light makes a difference. I have two kinds...one much more green, one much more scurfy and banded (with scurf). But I'm not sure of their ID either.
