Gee Ken, i'd like to be a fly on the wall in your garden !

I am very interested in belladonna boophone, crinum or brunsvegia crosses.
So thank u for sharing your photos......

This year i tried to cross a SE Queensland white crinum flaccidum x pale
belladonna & also flaccidum x crinum moreii, i hand pollinated daily but did
not get any seeds at all.
I will try again this summer......They would be pretty & unusual new crosses
if i succeed.

Do your crosses, grow & produce viable seed with similar traits to the
initial cross ?

Do u or perhaps someone else, have any tips as to why i might not have been
successful so far ?

Thank u Steven
