On this page are many pictures of Cyrtanthus hybrids
Cyrtanthus elatus hybrids. Photos 1-3 by Matt Mattus of bulbs purchased as seedlings from an IBS Symposium auction at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in 2001 blooming for the first time in his greenhouse in Massachusetts, in December 2004. The last photo taken July 2004 by Lee Poulsen of another elatus hybrid.
Cyrtanthus elatus × Cyrtanthus montanus is a vigorous evergreen hybrid. The bulbs get very large and blooming was improved when the bulbs were grown in a deeper pot. In Northern California this hybrid blooms in summer and small offset bulbs are produced close to the top of the larger bulbs which can be removed and shared with others. Eventually they will grow to blooming size. Photos by Bill Dijk and Mary Sue Ittner.
These two photos from Bill Dijk was originally listed on the species page, but they are most likely hybrids.
This photo is a plant that Bill Dijk thinks to most likely be a hybrid with C. eucallus and/or C. smithiae as a parent. He really likes it.
Grown from seed and blooming August 2004. Photos by Mary Sue Ittner. The second picture gives an idea of the size next to a blooming white Amaryllis belladonna hybrid.

(Cyrtanthus sanguineus × Cyrtanthus loddigesianus) × Cyrtanthus sanguineus. From IBS BX seed from Gerrit Oskam in 2001. These are the first flowers to appear. They're about 2 inches in diameter at the mouth. Photo 1 taken July 2003. Although another bulb had a scape of the same cream color, a third bulb in photo 2 taken August 2003 had these salmon colored flowers. Photo 3 shows both colors at the same time. Photo 4 taken September 2003 shows yet a slightly different color appearing in the same pot of seedlings, this one a more stunning shade of red. Photos by Lee Poulsen.
Cyrtanthus 'Summer Party' (Cyrtanthus elatus × Cyrtanthus sanguineus). Photos by Angelo Porcelli who wrote: "I made this cross in 2004 and this is the first plant to flower. These have combined well the best features of both parents. The overall look of the plant is a nice robust Cyrtanthus sanguineus with large flowers of a vivid orange."
Cyrtanthus 'White Gem' is a selection created by Harold Koopowitz and the University of California, Irvine. It probably has Cyrtanthus mackenii in its ancestry. This is a wonderful plant and is easy to grow. When it is happy, it produces a lot of very nice, creamy white flowers. Photo 1 was taken by Bob Rutemoeller. Photos 2-6 were taken by Nhu Nguyen.
