Hi Ken and list,

As far as I am aware the only interspecific cross within Scadoxus is of
S. multiflorus ssp. karharinae x S. puniceus.

I did however attempt S. multiflorus ssp. karharinae x S. pole-evansii
when my plants were in flower. A few berries did form, so time will tell
whether it was successful.

All of the other crosses I've attempted have failed, S. puniceus x S.
cyrtanthiflorus; S. multiflorus ssp. karharinae x S. membranaceus etc.
Scadoxus are a pretty conservative bunch, unlike many other genera who
freely produce interspecific and even intergeneric hybrids!

I'd love to hear from anyone else who has been hybridizing Scadoxus.

Kind regards,
