Thirteen years ago I made an Amaryllis x Brunsvigia cross using some pollen
given me by Bill the Bulb Baron. Thanks, Bill!


This year the plant finally bloomed.


Like everyone else who's made this cross, I found that the flowers are dark
magenta and the flower head is taller than Amaryllis. I tried to make some
crosses with it, but nothing set seeds. However, one unpollinated flower set
a single small white seed. I presume it was selfed.


In another 13 years, I'll let you know if it blooms.
