    I have been making a lot of crosses and should have more seed than I know what to do with this fall. Most definitely I will use the PFT forums to trade, give away, etc.

    I liked that one a lot too, not just because of the enormous size, but the shade of purple/red that the petals were, which doesn't show well on the digicam pic. The color was darker than it appears in the pic.

    Great photos!
    Are you sure the first one is oreophila x willisii? It seems to have no red in it at all.

    Unless Dean Cook is wrong about it, that's who I got it from. I guess it's just a clone that got most of the "flower genes" from oreophila. I've never before seen flowers of willisii or any of its hybrids, so I really don't know what to compare it to. To me, it looks like a large oreophila flower with longer petals.

    Nice pics!

    We had a late season freeze here and most of my blooms got knocked back this year... Maybe next year..
    Conservation just makes good sense!
