    Rare cultivars

    Well, its been a LONG time since I've seen (or heard) about the following cultivars from ICPS newsletter:

    Adrian Slack
    Vintage Slack
    Red Ruffles
    Lynda Butt
    Harvest of Gold, Golden Red Jubilee

    Has any progress been made tissue culturing these? I think we all want "Adrian Slack"

    And, what happened to "Cobra's nest?" At one time, you saw them at a lot of places, but now they're scarce.

    Oh god what we wouldn't give for 'Adrain Slack'! That and 'Leah Wilkerson' are the two most beautiful plants in existence if you ask me. I'd like to see a cross between the two.

    You used to see Cobras but you're right there are fewer and fewer.

    Adrian Slack is around but I doubt it will ever enter into TC. The reason being that flava and moorei plants seem to have a serious issue with getting clean for TC. Some quirk of flava

    'Leah' is in the works for TC however though I do not know when/if she is slated to go mass production.

    I recently (few days ago) acquired:

    S. 'Harvest of Gold'
    S. 'John's Autumnal Splendor'
    S. 'Hummer's Okee Classic'

    So they're out there, now I am not sure if they were TC or not,I dont think I ever asked LOL, but I just assumed yes

    But I dunno maybe divisions, two of the examples I got are fully mature, with the third still having a little ways to go

    (well known, respected source)

    'Adrian Slack' is still out there with collectors and 'Lynda Butt' is widespread over here. There was a source in the UK with purpurea 'Red Ruffles', although I don't know if he still has it.
    The rest you don't hear much about.

    Most of these plants are out there somewhere - you just have to know who to ask !!

    As Alexis says - Lynda Butt is now easy to get here in the U.K. - it wasn't a few years ago though.

    Eventually we all get what we want. By then though there are more new forms we all crave for........ it'll never end

    I'm only 17. Sometimes I wonder what our hobby will be like whenever I'm like 40 or 50. I want a driveway lined with Leahs.
