Howdy All, I have just uploaded to the wiki a picture of Fritillaria purdyi that is flowering for me here in Canberra, Australia at the moment. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… This is always the first Fritillaria to flower each season. The thing I particularly love about it is that it has an almost crystalline edging to the flower which makes it look like the flower has been delicately dipped in ice. The uploaded photo was taken last year as it particularly captured the "ice" so well. Is anyone else in Australia growing this? If so, I would be interested in sending/receiving pollen to/from someone who has it in flower or close to flowering at the moment. Mine is only a single clone and is apparently self-sterile. I would love to get some seed of this to "backup" my single plant that is somewhat slow to offset. If anyone has this flowering or near flowering please contact me privately. Cheers.
