New Crinum Hybrids

Jim,

I don't market bulbs, I just breed them and promote what I think are best,
distributing offsets to enthusiasts who will appreciate them.  I intend to
make all of my better bulbs available to Tony Avent, he already has C.
'Glory' and C. 'Persephone'.  He has the choice to propagate and sell them
if he thinks they're worthy, but he has a business to run and many good
candidates to choose from so there is no guarantee that any of my bulbs
will be marketed.  Tony has shown me how Plant Delights propagates Crinums,
and although not for the faint of heart, it is very effective and probably
makes tissue culture unnecessary in most cases.

I will have another new Crinum hybrid debut this evening, its seed parent
is C. amoenum and its pollen parent is C. 'Super Ellen'.  It has two
sisters which flowered last year, but both of them were mostly white, the
buds on the new one are dark.  I'll will photos this evening or tomorrow
morning.

Regards,

Jay
