Dear All:

I was given two different clones of H. macbridei some years ago.  Both are
opening buds at the moment.  I can't find a description of this species, and
I think the photo on the IBS web site showed a yellow species, although I
don't seem to be able to access their web site at the moment.  The flowers
that are opening are deep red with some striping on the petals.  They aren't
fully opened yet, and when they are I will take a picture and ask Susan
Hayek to put them on the wiki.  Has anyone grown this species?
