Dear listmembers, Now that Paige opened the subject on Ipheions, I would like report on our Iphions here in the nursery. All grown outside in the ground and flowering is now at its best. Following my Ipheion posting last summer I report on the september 2006 sowings of: --Alberto Castillo (fairly uniform, but 100% white), -- Charlotte Bishop (varying from light rose to a nice deep pink), --Froylemill, (70% deep purple, some with a white centre, some all purple, by the way I doubt the identity of Froylemill in the wiki page, the sowing contains some interesting large pale blue plants, possibly a result of "Alberto Castillo" pollen?) --Rolf Fiedler: 100% true Some list members obtained several lots of 100b of these sowings, it would be interesting to hear their reports on the flowering. Alberto Castillo has sent me some bulbs of a selection "Summerskies", which now shows its large blue flowers. It looks like a large improved form of 'Rolf Fiedler'(I will have a closer look at its bulbs next summer) and is certainly of future interest. Next weekend I will put up a series of pictures on the wiki.
