I response to message 4 what type of antiviral treatment did you use. Years 
 ago there was some work done on using heat to kill the virus. There must 
be some  published work on this. As far as a chemical treatment I have not 
heard of any  chemical that will kill the virus. Some antifungals will reduce 
some of the  viral symptoms but do not cure anything. I have done a lot of 
propagation work  with orchids which can get several non orchid viruses (TMV 
for one) and several  european growers were trying hot water treatments to 
kill the viruse. There was  some success but it was found using meristem 
tissue (fast growing new growth)  did not have high amounts of virus in the 
tissue. By removing this tiny growing  point and culturing on sterile medium you 
can produce virus free plants. I'm  sure they are using a related procedure 
to mass produce Hippeastrum. My advice  would be to isolate any infected 
plants and unless they are the last specimen in  the world burn the whole 
plant. Most plant viruses are transmitted by insects  through their sap. If you 
handle infected bulbs wear latex gloves or some other  barrier. Remember the 
virus is all through the plant,leaves,roots and bulb as  well as 
flowers.Most badly infected plants produce deformed flowers. The flower  can be 
deformed or have color streaking/blotching/spotting.Oh throw away that  dirt you 
had your infected plants in cause there could be some viruses lurking  there 
that can spread to your healthy plants. Also some plant viruses can stand  
drying and still be infective. For those not familiar with plant viruses just 
do  a search online and you will be stunned just how many types there are. 
So do  yourself a favor and get rid of the virused plants. When cutting 
flower stems  always use a sharp instrument,like a razorblade dipped in rubbing 
alcohol. The  alcohol will kill the virus and the blade is reusable. 
Remember to keep infected  plants separated from healthy ones. Russ H, BS, MS in

I checked the link to make sure it  works.  It seems to display the blog 
in Firefox, which has rearranged  some of the headings.  If it is viewed 
in Internet Explorer it is  OK.

Dear  Dennis        Thanks for reminding me. We have some LA  iris in bloom 
both hybrids and the very late species I brevicaulis.  Also  a few I. 
psuedata. This name may be new to some of you. It is a hybrid of I  pseudacorus x 
I ensata. Modern hybrids are far superior to older attempts and  have large 
flowers in a range of colors and patterns. And they are sterile so  unlike 
the pseudacorus parent do not seed about wildly. Recommended for pond  or 
well watered garden spot. 

Check out Draycott Gardens  for some pix

I don't  think there are any pix on the PBS wiki yet.

Some time a ago I posted about an anti-mosaic virus  treatment for 
hippeastrum bulbs.  I think the method is OK as a last  resort.  It 
certainly eliminated the of mosaic virus marking on the  survivors, but 
I can't be certain it is really gone.  The bulbs I  treated were 
identified as H. equestre red, H equestre pink and two  different H 
reticulatum striatafolium, all from Thailand.  The  'equestre did the 
best with substantial leaf growth and decent root  growth.  The 
reticulatum bulbs keep aborting their leaves but had  good root growth.  
I decided to dispose of the virused bulbs to  protect all my others.

On the Pacific Northwest coast,  Columbia lily has beaten out Martagon 
lilies to flower first. Buds are out but  mostly green on other lilies. 
Late Pacific Coast iris are flowering; these  are I. tenax selections and 
some hybrids (tenax x innominata), and dwarf I.  douglasiana seedlings. Also 
one clump of I. hartwegii australis continues to  toss out a flower every 
week or so.  
Colchicum foliage is dying down,  so I am digging out bulbs to make room 
for more iris plants. 
Lobelia tupa  has flower shoots with colored buds, though I don't expect 
flowers for some  weeks to come. 
Ornithogalums are flowering, as is Sisyrinchium  californicum, S. 
idahoense, and several selections with blue flowers.  
Seeds are ripening on several Erythroniums??and I may be able to send  
seeds to the exchange in several weeks. 

Cheers,
Kathleen

Came as a surprise yesterday morning.   Leaves died back and I had it ready 
to go into the basement for the summer  rest.

Flower lasts only a  day.
