Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

This is a first time blooming of a seedling that I got from seed from our Maria in October of 2010. I have several bulbs from this cross but they are at least a year away from blooming. This particular seedling was the most vigorous and grew like a weed. I left it go into dormancy in November and was surprised to see a flower scape at just over 2 years from seed.
The pod parent is Santa Rosa, a beautiful cream/rose colored cybister. The pollen parent is a Komoriya hybrid. This 'baby' combines the flowering characteristics of both parents. The flower has the re-curved petals of a cybister. Unfortunately, it posesses the 2 flowers per stem of its pollen parent, Yume Mitai. Hopefully, in years to come it will produce more flowers per stem. I have a fondness for all things cybister, so this, little gem, has definitely earned a spot on my growing table. I hope you enjoy it and I will try to get a better photo. It was so windy here today that I could not get a good 'outside' photo.

Thanks Maria!!!

Jim

I love cybisters! I think she's gorgeous... hopefully subsequent blooms will yield more flowers. She is quite a prize! -

Wonderfully stunning

Just beautiful Jim! I too have a few seedlings from Maria growing on nicely..cybister type too!
Let me take this opportunity (rather than look for an older thread) to show you how vigorously the aulicum seedling you sent are growing. There are 5 that are growing extremely well and although I know they should be repotted I think they can wait a few more months until late Spring. I just love the way the leaves curl..is this a trait of aulicum?..Thanks again,Donna

Very lovely - soft yet with that wilder cybister showing through. :)

How nice!!!

I should be the one thanking you Jim for posting the result of your TLC and hard work. I am just a pollen dabber. :-) Yes, 2010 was a very productive year when I was blessed and got to release a lot of seed crosses between the exotics(cybisters/trumpets/yellows) and my Japanese hybrids. Hopefully, they will produce flowers that you all will be happy with.

Below is an updated pic of your seedling Jim so you can keep this for your records. H. Santa Rosa - seedpod parent on the left and H. Yume Mitai pollen parent on the right. Thank you so much again for sharing pics of this result with us.

Happy Hippie growing everybody!!!

They are all so lovely!

Hi Maria,

The progeny of Santa Rosa and Yume Mitai all all lovely!

I have a question about Yume Mitai: On the Internet I see pictures that show 4 flowers and am wondering how many flowers you were able to get from your bulb. Perhaps the picture is an illusion and there is a second stalk directly behind the first scape. Just curious as it is a very beautiful flower.
Thanks,

Donna

RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Yume Mitai - 2 flowers per stem

I also got some results this year from "Dad" Yume Mitai:)


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Pupu.
That's very pretty but it seems to have lost the delicate markings of "Dad". Do you remember what the cross was?

I wonder if you crossed Yume Mitai with Graffiti if the markings would come through..similar type flowers..just a thought..

Donna

RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Hello, Donna
Mother is Jade Serpent.
I think this photo looks like Graffiti, maybe it's the same cross or relative?

RE: Maria's Gem ( Papilio/Cybister cross)

First bloom with 4-4 1/2 inch flowers. Hard to measure with those twirly curly petals. Four flowers per scape. Exact parentage unknown as tag was lost. Papilio should be one of it's parents and the other one will be a cybister (not Jungle Star). Definitely one of my early crosses in 2008 or 2009. It reminds me so much of Jungle Star except that it looks more feminine with wider petals and green petal edges. So I'll nickname it as...

Jungle Lady

RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Maria i love the frilly edges and the deep veins that run through it. i also like to see the other flowers in peoples pics and it looks like your clivias are coming in great


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Maria,

Her shapely presence brings both papilio and Ludwig 96-28 to mind. She is curvaceous, bold, and beautiful.

Congratulations!

Blanca

Maria,

You can't get much better than that! Very desirable and an apt name. I love the green on the end of each curvy petal! I hope I end up with something like this from my papilio crosses with cybisters!! Only 3 year to wait...

RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

WOW, Jungle Lady is a hot chick.

Congrats, Maria


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Now this is a good one! Thank you for showing and Compliments to the breeder!


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Hubba hubba! Jungle Lady is a hottie! She's got beautiful curves.


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Thank you all!

Just an update on Jungle Lady...
I pollinated all of it's 4 flowers.
Unfortunately, she decided to rest after flowering (no new leaf growth) so all pollinations failed. :-(
This lady is playing her "hard to get" game on me! LOL

Here she was before she took her beauty sleep.


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

I hope that your sleeping beauty will find her perfect mate the next time she blooms.

 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

I just gotta share this pic...

My best hybrid with H. Bogota (established). LOL
I used Jungle Lady's pollens on this Bogota and I think I will be blessed with some seeds. Counting down the weeks now...

RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Maria,

I wish you luck this this cross, if it takes the flowers should be just gorgeous!! I just had one stalk on my Bogota and pollinated all 4 flowers and the only one that took was Sweet Lilian.. a few of them are germinating.

It looks like your good genes were passed down to your cute grandaughter as well!!


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Thanks Donna! Bogota X Sweet Lilian looks exciting. Hope the siblings inherit SL's colors, fragrance and performance. SL does flower twice a year sometimes.

Bogota X Jungle Lady failed. Seedpods just decided to shrivel up. Oh well... I pollinated some Komoriya bulbs with it's pollens. It seems like this lady likes Sushi. :-)


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Another lost tag seedling blooms. Very cute! It must be one of my Limona / Exotica / Green Sonatini crosses. I am thinking more of Exotica as it inherited the shimmer on the petals. But then it's got Limona's veining likewise. Oh well...

And another one blooms in Australia in less than 3 years from planting seeds. This one came from a seed mix so it could have been from my Hippies or your donated seeds. Thank you all so much for sharing.

Pretty color huh? Reminds me of Donau. Thank goodness it's not red! LOL

This seedling of mine is right now in bloom...first time.
I think it is a keeper. 4 buds in the scape.
Hopefully it regularly blooms in fall.

Very nice undulating frills! It looks like another splendid offspring of 'Yume Mitai.'


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Thanks Blanca! No Yume Mitai genes in this one girlfriend...just H. papilio. 4 1/2 inch wide flowers.


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

WOW!! Now that's a keeper!!


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Wow! I'm surprised. That is a great result!


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Yes, colors and corrugating just wonderful!
The flower has a unique look, congratulations.


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Thanks everyone! Yume, Graffiti and Viridi have very similar color patterns and inherited papilio's wide petalled "wings". Jungle Joy did not inherit this and has thinner petals which most probably is the reason why it is greener. It could be the cooler fall temps likewise. I will try to cross this one with Jungle Lady and hope to get more frilly petalled results with red picotee. I love them picoteed frills!


 o
RE: Maria's Gem (H. Santa Rosa x H. Yume Mitai)

Beautiful as always, Maria! :-)
