    I know it's been said before...but I need to ask two related questions anyway.

    1) What are the crosses that compose s.leucophylla "red"?

    2) I have some "red" that I just pollinated and have a s. x 'Judith Hindle' opening up. I know 'Judith Hindle' is s. (purpurea x flava) x leucophylla. Anyone know if anyone has crossed the 'Judith' and 'red' together?

    3) If I do cross these together, and the mother plant is the "Judith Hindle', how would I write the cross? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    The leucophylla red is often described as willisii x leucophylla, but I've heard that it is actually (willisii x leucophylla) x leucophylla.

    I don't know if the two have been crossed, but the result should be a nice plant.

    I would describe the cross simply as S.x 'Judith Hindle' x leucophylla red.

    Treaqum, I read somewhere that the 'Judith Hindle' will gain more coloration as it matures. I don't know if this is true across the board, but take a look at a comparison of the this year's pitchers vs. last year:




    the leuco 'red' I'd like to cross this with is pictured here:


    Should be fun. I'm guessing the hybrid will have lots of ruffles, be a redder and taller than the 'Judith'. My "red" is also much more robust, so I hope it gains that quality as well. Hee..I'm going to run out and pollinate it right now.

    the leucophylla 'red' can also be called by its cultivar name, which is 'Daina's Delight'

    crossing it with judith should yield some very colorful plants. Dean Cook sent me some pics of some young 'Daina's Delight' x 'Mardi Gras' plants he made. They look pretty stunning too.

    I meant I think my TC clone messed up. ANyway good now I can relabel my S. 'red leuco' 'Dana's Delight'. Now that I know the cultivar name. It is really robust.

    Your 'Judith Hindle' should turn almost completely red, so I think you need to give it more sun.
    The resulting hybrid will be very red with many pink and white areoles.
