Dear All:

I haven't seen too many hybrids on my wanderings, except for hybrids between
C. luteus and C. superbus.  These are extremely common where their ranges
overlap.  I grew a large pot full of hybrid bulbs from one seed pod from a
wild hybrid (these are not sterile, obviously), and the color range was
amazing - all shades of white through cream, pale yellow to deep yellow.
