Lemon Sorber, Green Dragon & Lowe's Lady Jane

Hi Everyone,

Just a few pictures of my Lemon Sorbet, I can't believe how beautiful this one is and how yellow! Green Dragon is a little cutie, but I fear this one is stressed as one bud won't open, I may have to cut off the scapes to save the bulb... and of course Lowe's Susan that is Lady Jane...

I was going to put Rebel's pollen on Green Dragon, but I think I will dab some on Lemon Sorbet instead, since it appears more stable. There are 9 flower to come on Lemon Sorbet and 5 on Green Dragon..both have 2 scapes. I'm not sure if Rebel's pollen will take on these minis but It's worth a try...

Lemon Sorbet - - what a beautiful flower! My Susan from Lowes also turned out to be Lady Jane - it has barely emerged from the bulb but has produced a nice bloom with two more to open.

Donna,

My "Green Dragon" is nice and planted into the pot with decent roots but some of the flowers are deformed and some just wont open?! It's a cute little flower tho!

I love your "Lemon Sorbet" ;)

Joshy did You buy her this year?
Feed her well and see the flower next year.
Maybe she had some troubles in transport or storing.
best regards

The latest picture of your Green Dragon is just wonderful!! I might have to look around and try to find one of those.

Josh, One of the flowers on my Green Dragon was deformed also, I just picked it off. There were only 5 flowers total on 2 scapes, now there are four. I pulled all the pollen off but won't put anything on her. Her profile is sweet too and the back of the flower is even greener...I'm really beginning to like these smaller flowered varieties, expecially the ones with the shorter stems.

Thanks Everyone,

Donna

They all sound pretty. Donna and Josh, I hope your Green Dragons root well soon.
Donna, does Lemon Sorbet have any scent? If not, do any of you know of any yellow hippies that do have scent?

My "Green Dragon" had 3 scapes with a total of 10 flowers, one had 4 and the others 3. I really like it overall, the shape and color are great. The bulb itself is only 14 cm at most!!!!
