    wow awesome gh of sarrs. Just out of curiosity, what does the owner do with seeds produced from all of those flowers? Most likely being cross-pollinated, I can't imagine how to figure out what is what and more importantly what is done with them....

    Lots of great sarrs in that collection. Is this a personal collection for hobby or for sales?

    Incredible! I get the impression he sows a lot of hybrid seeds and leaves them to do their thing!

    about the 11th pic down, it looks like the tag says "Fat *******" - love the name!

    awesome shots, btw. what an enviable place.

    is it Jerry A.'s place?

    He creates >200 crosses per season and those I believe are the only seeds that are sown.

    Not sure hobby is the correct term...addiction is far more fitting. Some sales but they are minimal due to choice.

    Yes, "Fat *******" is a stunning plant. Catches my eye every time I walk past it. The image does not do its size justice. You are correct, it is Jerry's place. He's an amazing grower and one of the kindest individuals I've met. It's a thrill each time I'm able to visit.

    If there are still flowers when I'm there next I'll try and obtain a better shot.
