    Ok, so day 2. We got a late start because I had to do a few things at work, so no breakfast at Cafe' Du Monde. We fire up the pick-up and start heading east on I-10. We hadn't made it out of LA for 10 minutes when Jay is oh so casually saying "Wow, theres a big stand". So screach go the tires as I slam on the brakes and cut to the shoulder. That was pretty much what set off the day. We saw maybe half a dozen stands on the side of I-10. Including one HUGE stand that was on a federal wildlife reserve.



    Lotsa flowers


    Without further delay, on to Citronelle. The Holy Grail (at least from what I have seen) of Sarrs.



    I love the color in this baby.




    Very nice hybrid







    More pink flowers



    Simply spectacular




    Another cool hybrid


    Sorry to all the folks on dial-up out there, but I can't help it. Your lucky I am not posting all 150 pics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wonderful pictures. You are doing a great job of collecting these species for our viewing pleasure.

    Beautiful photos! What a sight it must be to see all that in person.

    Any ID on the first photo of flowers? Or are allthe plants unidentifiable hybrids?

    You two are lucky to be able to go see such things. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Jay will prolly check in soon to correct me, but I am fairly sure that the pink flowers are pink flowered wheryi, which I understand is quite rare. The dark reds are normal wheryi. We also say some orange and yellow flowered wheryi in the same stand.
