Jan 6, 11 - Welcome
My hybrids at (2011 Info & Catalog)


The 'Janis Ruksans' web page (click link above) has been updated to show varieties he is selling in 2011. You can also download his complete 2011 catalog.

I've gone one step further regarding children by adding dedicated pages showing their photos. You can get to them via the 'Children' menu below at the left, or by clicking on the 'Children' link where appropriate on the 'Individuals' pages.

For those of you living in Europe, White Caucasus is available for the first time from http://www.Bulbs-Bollen.nl

I was quite pleased with a number of this year's new hybrids. It is hard to pick favorites because they each have their own unique personalities. 03-AQ-1, 03-HW-1, 05-GQ-1 and 03-HW-1 are excellent examples of one of my main goals - to create beautiful new patterns.

Unfortunately we had unusually hot weather (30C) during bloom at the beginning of April. As a result a lot of the hybrids "melted" before I could hybridize them -- so many were ready to hybridize all at the same time, plus with the heat they didn't last as long as they normally would. Typically during main bloom I focus on the newest hybrids first and get to the older ones when I have a chance. Normally this means one area of older bulbs will be gotten to one day and another the next. This year by the time I had a chance to look at some of the older varieties they were too far along to even try hybridizing. A compounding factor was the upside down dish pans that I use to cover the flowers to keep the bees and other insects from interferring with my crosses, as well as protecting them from the elements: rain, snow, and wind (i.e. blowing the pollen before I have a chance to collect it). In this situation they actually trapped the heat and aged the flowers even faster.
A number of new features have been aded to the web site:
 •  'Children' (pod and pollen) have been added to the Individuals pages where applicable
 •  'By Year, etc.' shows 1) the hybrids by the year the were crossed, 2) the sxdxc hybrids by the type of cross
 •  more photos are shown per page (reducing the number of pages slightly)

Note: the 'faster' pages, which load faster because they have smaller photos, have not been updated.
