    Do you have S. x 'Leah Wilkerson' or 'Reptilian Rose' pollen?

    I'm looking for fresh S. x 'Leah Wilkerson' or 'Reptilian Rose' pollen within the next week or so. I have a S. x 'Doreen's Colossus' that should be blooming in about 10 days --two flowers-- and would like to cross one of the flowers with these plants.

    I can either share seeds with you or reciprocate and send some of 'Doreen's Colossus' pollen back to you.

    Let me know.

    My Reptilian Rose is just now opening. Depending on how much I am able to get I may be able to send some your way. I'll let you know after it's fully opened.

    I made the cross between Colossus and Leah last year. Already sent out some seeds. Good luck with it though, the more crosses the more chances for something spectacular and large.

    French: That would be amazing! Let me know. I think mine is a week away. I'll PM my address in the event you get enough to send.

    Brokken: We'll have to share notes on how these turn out!

    Absolutely. I kept some of them for myself and I have two growing in my bogs. They're pretty teeny right now.

    Good luck with that pollen Yann. All three of my flowers were dry just like last year. Let me know how yours turns out.

    Sorry OZ, my LW is already done.

    Thanks anyway, Fred. I appreciate the thought.

    Interesting results on the RR pollen. I've heard this before. It is interesting, though, isn't it? Plants are like people, in that every aspect of their being is genetically reflected. We take it for granted that plants are more than simple looks. I have one Sarracenia flava clone, for example, that produces an overabundance of pollen, significantly more than any other sarr I have.

    I have a Leah Wilkerson..
    however all my plants are VERY late this year..because they have been outdoors since early-march..
    growth has barely begun..a few flower stalks are just beginning to poke up..
    I expect it will be another month at least before any flowers open..

    I put them outside so early because its been an unusually warm spring..
    but they are so far behind because its been so cold out.
    (that does actually make perfect sense!

    so I might have some pollen..but I expect it will be too late..
    I will keep you posted.
