Dear All,

Jane McGary has been adding a lot of Fritillaria pictures to the wiki. For 
the North American page she has added  pictures of Fritillaria agrestis, 
Fritillaria affinis, and Fritillaria affinis 'Wayne Roderick'. I added a 
picture of F. liliacea blooming for me for the first time from seed. It's a 
very small flower. Somehow I was expecting something bigger. I am still 
thrilled that it bloomed. Diana Chapman always talked about how fragrant it 
was and I just had the one flower, but just didn't notice any fragrance. 
Could it be one of those that only certain people can smell?…

On the main page:…

Jane has added pictures of Fritillaria alfredae glaucoviridis, F. 
ehrhartii, F. messanensis gracilis, F. sibthorpiana and a tall form of 
Fritillaria tubiformis.

I made a new page for Pasithea:…
I am growing it in a very deep pot as I didn't have any luck with it in the 
ground even though I saw some in the ground at the University of California 
Botanical Garden in Berkeley. The pictures on your screen (everyone's 
computer colors are a bit different) may be a bit bluer than it really is 
as the blue has a bit of purple in it and I've not found a good way to fix 
that yet either on the digital camera or by manipulating it. But I'd still 
call it blue. I love this plant that I first admired in Jim Forrest's 
garden in New Zealand. He shared seeds so it is definitely my Jim Forrest 
Memory Plant.
