At the risk of sounding silly....a coworker got a massive bunch of Lilium "Stargazer". Aside from the striking color and scent...I just wondered if a cross with Hippeastrum would be possible.

THOUGHTS?

Just makes such a pretty cross in my mind!! Reminds me of our young Canadian lister... He claimed success...! Too bad it 's "impossible", but was a nice thought. Thanks for confirming what I thought Blanca.

Trust me...I thought of him as I wrote it. Now...he said the seedings were destroyed by something but he claims they existed. I just wish there was a way to bottle that fragrance and get it into our hippis. I promise I wasn't drinking when I wrote the post....dreaming perhaps!
