Further on Dirk's Fritillaria eastwoodiae: Those I am growing here all have 
more recurved tepals,. and most are more in the scarlet range and less yellow.

Some authorities regard F. eastwoodiae as a natural hybrid of F. recurva 
and F. micrantha, but Frank Callahan reports that the former grows in areas 
where neither of the latter are presently found. Certainly, however, it is 
quite a variable species.

This year I offered mixed "rice grains" of this species, so I hope the many 
people who ordered them will come up with a nice range of colors.
