I originally had one D. burmannii plant. *It grew well, got quite large, produced several flower scapes, made seed and eventually died off. *I collected seed and also there were volunteers in the pot so I transplanted several of those and now have a pot bursting with about 5 burmanniis. *They are all starting to produce scapes in various stages.
The largest scape and a couple of others have matured and are setting seed. *When I went to check on the seed I noticed something. *The largest plant had a large flower scape with WHITE flowers (made sure by looking through a magnifying glass) and the spent flowers were light brown. *All the other plants that had (or have) flowers are PINK. *Clearly pink..even the spent flowers are pink.
So...my question is...is it unusual to get both white and pink flowers out of the same batch of seed from one single plant? *Is one color more typical than the other? *Unfortunately I do not recall the flower color of the original burmanii plant. *Would seed from the white flowered scape give white flowered plants and vice versa with the pink?
All the plants are definitely D. burmannii and I had no sessilifolia at the time the original plant flowered.
If anyone has any comments I'd sure appreciate it. *Thanks!
