Hand pollinate and send to the SX?  Pretty please.  You've just ratcheted up demand with this lovely picture.  Those are stunning.

You may have gathered by now that I like erythroniums and trilliums.  This is Erythronium revolutum with Trillium kurabayashii or chloropetalum (damned if I know the difference).  I love the trillium with the really dark leaves.

Some kind of yellow erythronium.  I haven't been able to ID it with any certainty.

Those species irises are a lot prettier than most of the hybrids.  Whether it's pallida or sicula it'a pretty thing.  I also like your picture of Iris xiphium.  Quite delicate.

Bulb and Seed Exchanges / Next US Seed Exchange
April 23, 2023, 06:00:28 PM
You may have been wondering when this year's first US seed exchange would happen.  The answer is at the end of May or early June after I get back from my trip to Europe.  I'm leaving May 2nd for the Czech International Rock Garden Conference and then traveling on the Great Britain to see even more gardens. Woo hoo!  I get back May 24th.  

I considered doing a seed exchange before I left but decided that way led to stressed out madness.  Most of the seed is packaged, organized and ready to go so I should be able to announce the next exchange fairly soon after I return.  I am still accepting seed but be aware that you won't be getting any acknowledgment of seed arrival when I'm gone.  My non-gardening husband will be home taking care of the cat and the garden so seed will be picked up from the mail box.  If you send seed please, oh pretty please, include a slip of paper with your email address so I don't have to go hunt it up.

Mystery Bulbs / Re: Narcissus species?

You might be able to figure out what it is using Daffseek.  The daffodiliacs also seem to have another website that might help you.  Old House Gardens deals in heirloom plants and even Brent and Becky's offer some.  

Something about the ruffled corolla makes me think this is a hybrid not a species.  Just a gut level feeling.  It does have a lovely, delicate look about it.

Looks like your picture didn't post.  Try again?

Better protect your six flower specimens from fast fingered thieves.  I can see a hippeastrum hybridizer being real tempted to walk off with your baby.

Martin, my pleiones are also not really up either.  They're in a barely above freezing greenhouse but we've had a cold, damp winter.  I do see some buds however.  When we visited Utrecht Botanic Garden a few years ago I noticed they grow pleiones outside so they must be reasonably hardy.  I put out some seedlings last year but I haven't checked to see if they're still there.  They weren't blooming size yet. 
Here's the bag of the packet for the KNO3 and gibberellic acid powder.

Scilla 'Sibrose' a hybrid of Scilla siberica and Scilla rosenii.  I also have its sister S. 'Rosiba'.  Neither are all that great but I'm hand pollinating them in the hope the F2 generation will yield something that looks more like S. rosenii but isn't so demanding.

Vigorous narcissus hybrid.  I believe I got the seed from Anne Wright at Dryad Nursery.
