The specimens of the respective grex were amazingly different! I list the seedlings with outstanding performance: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/… ruby red; 3 scapes, 3+2+2 indiv. flowers http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/… Creamy white with pink, 3 scapes, 4+4+3 flowers Slightly fragrant! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/… Pink with some green, and the edges of the segments were heavenly friled! 1 scape with 2 flowers This was the one-and-only specimen I received seeds from, and, please note, after self pollination. Seed production after selfing is not so very likely in diploid hybrids a.f.a.i.k. I obtained 45 seeds out of the 2 seed pods and, so far, 34 seedlings, respectively. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/… Colors similar to the pollen donor (Giraffe); 1 scape 3 flowers. Slightly fragrant! As to fragrance, this propery should be inherited by Pink Floyd which is, by some people assigned as being fragrant. However, I could not confirm this, at least MY specimens of "Pink Floyd" were NOT scented. Further informations/pictures about the project are included here http://landspro.com/forums/showthread.php3/… If I were to recommend a diploid breeding project then it is this combination of diploid parents. Obviously a wide range of color patterns can be obtained. However, long, genuinely tube shaped flowers will reappear first in the F2 because that property is so obviously intermediately inherited. The selected seedlings did produce amazingly lots of leaves, approx. 10 when I forced the young seedling bulbs this season, which were not older than 2.5 y. Does anyone know what the parentages of the two mentioned diploid parents are?! Previously, I assumed that Pink Floyd be identical to H.doraniae. But, concluding out of a similar diversity as above, namely in the progeny after crossing Pink Floyd with H.papilio, I can no more maintain this opinion. And the confusion becomes all the more complete as I read in Veronica's book that the appearance of Pink Floyd was credited to Mr. J.L.Doran. But, in fact he does not know while you see that the suspected species amaryllis does obviously carry his name. In the case of "Giraffe" I carry the suspicion that this is a primary hybrid between H.papilio and H.evansiae. What do you think?!
