Mary Sue, Thanks for the response. I have heard nothing else from anyone so yours is the only thing to go by. I'd be more expecting mine to be non-virused than yours with their little splotches all over it, as there are flowers with blending that appears similar to in my sparaxis. BUT..... just because I think it is less likely doesn't mean squat <grin>. Is Alberto out there and knows about virus in sparaxis? Anyone else? If interested they are at the bottom of the wiki page on Sparaxis.... http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Hopefully someone has experience with Sparaxis of this appearance and whether they are virused or not? I happen to agree with you Mary Sue that the pink one is rather different for a sparaxis. It is such a rich pink and was most welcome when it flowered in my garden I assume that I came across it in a friends garden and asked for a piece of it.....at least that is where I assume it came from. That particular one I honestly don't remember. Most of them I can place their origins but that one I can't remember. <grin> Given the placing of it it was deliberately planted and was not a seedling. My Sparaxis are only just getting to the stage where seedlings are emerging around the place. Given the selection of colours I have now there should be some interesting results as they combine. I do have a few more varieties that I do not have photographs so I'll try to photograph them for you when they flower this spring. Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia.
