Amaryllis 'Multiflora' breeding questions
Tue, 27 Oct 2009 02:50:38 PDT
Indeed I am having a bit of fun here in Southern Italy too, crossing some Amaryllis forms with Brunsvigia bosmaniae and reverse. I wonder why th B. bosmaniae hasn't been taken in due consideration in breeding with Amaryllis, because of its wonderful shape of inflorescence and the size and number of florets. Just these days the capsule are ripening. On Brunsvigia bosmaniae the capsule are full of seeds but I didn't emasculate the florets so self pollination is possible, but on Amaryllis I removed anters so I hope to get hybrid seeds. I will keep updated as the seeds ripe.
