>> From Pamela Harlow: 
> SEED: 
> 1. Brodiaea coronaria ex NNS (Ron Ratko) 02-68:  seed from about 40 
> individuals, all grown from Ron’s wild-collected seed with no chance of 
> pollination from other plants – 2010 seed 02-68 Brodiaea coronaria  Modoc 
> Plateau, Modoc Co., 4750’The flowers in this population are slightly smaller 
> with darker blue-purple lobes, paler tubes and distinct pale cream bases. 
> The flowers are held on erect pedicels creating a narrow candelabra.  Common 
> throughout the undulating flats of rocky clay derived from basalt.  Large 
> colonies are prevalent around the numerous vernal, both natural and manmade, 
> ponds that dot the landscape.  Sierra juniper and sagebrush flats.  The 
> hardiest member of the genus, hardy to Zone 5. 
> 20. Dichelostemma capitatum, ex NNS 03-208 note:  these didn’t bloom until 
> this year so the 2010 Brodiaea could not be contaminated by them 
> 21. Fritillaria affinis 
> 22. Fritillaria camschatensis ex Archibald 4.390.110 note:  parent plants 
> exhibit quite varied bloom color 
> 24. Trillium rivale ex NNS 04-460 
> 25. Trillium rivale ex NNS 04-461 
>> From Arnold Trachtenberg: 
> 27. Seed of Aesculus parviflora      Aesculus parviflora is not a bulb, it's 
> a large shrub native to the southeastern United States with attractive 
> flowers and foliage, and often striking yellow autumn color.  It's much more 
> cold hardy (USDA Zone 5, possibly 4) than its native range would suggest. 
>  It grows from large seeds, which must be sown immediately otherwise they 
> dry out and aren't viable.  I've successfully grown the plant from seed in 
> two ways, placing fresh seeds under the leaf litter along the edge of a 
> woodland where I want them to grow, and pressing them into moist potting 
> soil in gallon containers and keeping those containers in my garage until 
> spring.  Keeping them in the cool, but frost free, garage helps in two ways, 
> it keeps the squirrels from finding the ungerminated seeds and eating them, 
> and if some of the seeds germinate early the young plants don't freeze. 
>  They're not houseplants, germinating and growing them at room temperature 
> over the winter is not recommended.  Well cared for plants often flower when 
> just a few years old. 
> 43. Seed of Lilium sp?    I did not see the open flower. From dried petals 
> on some plants the color was yellow/orange. This could mean L. pardalinum, 
> or L. kelleyanum. The common name for this lily is "Leopard Lily."
