p. Alata 'Ruby Glow'

bigbubbacain(z9a TX)September 11, 2005

I was lucky enough yesterday to find a p. Alata 'Ruby Glow' at a nursery in my little podunk town. I was even more surprised to see it blooming, though this was probably the result of having the right fertilizer from the grower. I want successful blooming with this variety, and I want to increase my chances for fruiting. Will this one need to cross pollinate with another p. Alata 'Ruby Glow', or will this plant self-pollinate? There were only 2 plants left, so I need to know. As for fertilizing, what is a good N-P-K ratio? I realize this probably isn't the season to encourage blooming, but I want to be prepared for the right time.

thanks for your help.

There is only one clone of P. alata 'Ruby Glow', also known as P. phoenicea 'Ruby Glow', and it is not self-fertile. You will need something different for cross-pollination. A different P. alata would work, and I believe P. caerulea will also work. P. incarnata may work as well. Not sure about the fertilizing.
