Cyrtanthus elatus x montanus BX 330

I don't know about the  Cyrtanthus elatus x montanus coming from Mary Sue,
unless they, like mine, originally came from Bill Dijk in New Zealand.  My
bulbs seem to be individually self-sterile, but there seem to be several
separate clones among the originals, because in the distant past, I have
cross pollinated among the various separate plants and have gotten fertile
seeds.  Unfortunately, I never grew those seeds to mature bulbs for want of
space and patience. So they should be fertile, if not self-fertile.

This cross is a wonderful pot plant here in Indiana, producing abundant
flowers in late summer.  It is definitely worth growing.
