    The native wild D. rotundifolia in northwestern California flower in the spring (April - May) shortly after coming out of dormancy. I suppose the more general answer would depend on the genetics of the particular plant in question (that is, where it originated) and whether flowering is triggered by photoperiod or temperature, or both. When grown side-by-side in a greenhouse, D. rotundifolia originating from southern latitudes may flower earlier and become dormant later than those from far northern latitudes. That would be something interesting to check out.

    Yes that very possible. However, it may not work, you can try try try all you want, but it may just not make viable seed, or the seedlings will be sickly and die.

    I dont know about that......
    aliciae is a subtropical plant from south africa.
    D.rotundifolia is a temperate plant from Europe and North America.
    They will also have to flower at the same time for it to work, or you could try storing pollen in the fridge.
