Oborozuki

My Oborozuki is blooming on a very long, leaning stem. It's quite pretty and more yellow than I've been able to capture in my pictures. I was planning to put Miss Lemon pollen on a couple of blooms but the pollen opened before I could remove it so there might be a couple of selfs. She is also rooting fairly well.
This was a bulb Komoriya sent me in as an extra along with a replacement for one that died and I am pleased with it. I froze the pollen.

It's gorgeous! I like the long, slender, more feminine petals... and of course I like the color! A real beauty!

I've been out of the loop for so long, I have no idea about newer sources, variety names, etc... but she sure is a looker!

Oh Boy, Am I a Dummy!!

This isn't Oborozuki, it's KOGANE NO SATO, Oborozuki is sitting next to it and my mind transposed the tags. Anyway, what ever her name, she's very pretty, thanks, Jody...

Here is Oborozuki, I may have already posted her picture.

Donna,

So glad you are finally seeing some growth and of course the beautiful yellow flowers! These bulbs take dedication and lots of patience :) - J

Beautiful! I didn't realize there were any yellows, thanks for sharing!

RE: Oborozuki

Seems to me that Komoriya has MANY yellows (and I feel like I have 1 of each!) I have made a few crosses with these as seed parent. They are the tiniest seedlings with thin leaves.

I think this is my Kogane no Sato...

Really beautiful... all of them! Thanks for sharing, Ladies!

Kristi, Your Kogane no Sato doesn't look much like mine does it.

Miss Lemon was one that I really liked but hard to get going. I lost the first bulb to sickness but they did replace it for me but I can't seem to get the second bulb to root even though it did bloom for me.

Miss Lemon:

Piyo-piyo was another. This picture shows it being darker than the others and I think I remember it was. All my other yellows were a bit darker than the pictures but none quite as yellow as Piyo-piyo.

Lemon Gold was nice too, a soft yellow that gave me 4 good sized flowers. This was one of the very first bulbs I bought and it bloomed right away. It then rooted and about 6 months later it sent up another scape with 2 homely flowers. Now, is sits like a rock and tried to put up a leaf which promptly turned brown. I don't know what the problem with these bulbs is. Some of them are fine and some of them still haven't done a thing for me. I have one other yellow, Yellow Gorgeous which is now the size of a marble and certainly on it's way out... never bloomed and never rooted. All my bulbs have had the same care and culture. I tried rooting hormone and that didn't work either. I give up!!

Lemon Gold:

That's it for me for the yellows. At the time I tried to get a seedpod on Lemon Yellow but it failed. I haven't bothered to try to hybridize with any of the other yellows although when removing pollen they had the opportunity to self. I don't think anything I could hybridize would be any better than what I already have.

LIke Kristi says, some of these bulbs put out the tiniest embryos. Someone from Europe sent me some seeds of Chico x Yumi Mitai and a few of them made it and they are the tiniest things I have ever seen. I am leaving them in the water as long as I dare before I plant them.☺☺☺Donna

Jodi,
You missed the entire Komoriya buying frenzy...with bulbs priced from $20-$60+ each!

Oh....this thread isn't complete without Lemon Feather!

RE: Oborozuki

I inadvertently managed to self two pods on my Kogane no Sato while removing the pollen and the pods are growing. These are the smallest seedpods I've ever seen!! Of course they are not that far along, but I think it's interesting that you can see the individual seeds. Looks like 9 seeds in this pod. These seeds will be very tiny and will produce extremely small seedlings. I'm not sure if I will bother trying to germinate them...Donna☺☺

Donna, I made that same self. The resulting seedlings are very tiny and threadlike. A lot of work. I hope they make it!
