Hi All, well, "Naked Lady" season has come again to Sacramento; Amaryllis belladonnas blooming everywhere like road-side weeds. My Hippeastrum 'Exotica' just sent up its last scape of the year, so I thought I would try an intergeneric cross using the 'Exotica' as the seed-parent and an A.belladonna as a pollen-parent. The ovaries of the 'Exotica' look like they're starting to swell...so maybe the cross took. Has anyone tried this crossing before? I read that the name of an intergeneric cross should be a conjunction of the whole or part of one name combined with the whole or part of the other...maybe combined with a connecting vowel. What is the given name of this intergeneric cross..."Hippearyllis"? Has anyone grown/seen a "Hippearyllis"? I'd be curious to know. -d.
