We just started making crosses last year with xAmarcrinum onto a number of things including other crinum, ammocharis, rhodophiala, and habranthus.  The seedlings are still to young to know what we have. Wish us luck.

Has anyonedone or know of anyone who has done any work with xAmarcrinum in a breeding program, besides selfing, with other amaryllids in California?

I'd like to know what genera were used and what the outcomes might have been.

Thanks for sharing.
