Well it's finally that time of year when the outside plants start their flowering period. This year the first are the S. flava although there are buds starting to open on oreophila, purpurea and their hybrids.
The purpurea and leucophylla are now beginning to flower, including this seed grown leucophylla Donald Schnell x purpura ssp. venosa, var. Burkeii, f. luteoa, the seed obtained from Christian Klein and this is the first time it has flowered for me. With that parentage I wasn't expecting the red tinge.
Well the leucophylla and purpurea and their hybrids inflorescences are following the flava and oreophila, with just the minors and rubra that are now in bud to come, I haven't made any crosses this year, but will save some seed and grow them next years to see what hybrids the pollinators have created.
