March 13, 2002 - Welcome
A second warm spring-like day in a row has again produced a number of new exciting new hybrids. These are all F2 sxd clones. 97-CC-3 is different from all other sxd blues because it appears to be veined like it's sophenensis parent. The other blues have veining; it's just that the blue blends all together on the fall blade.

Isn't it quite something how dark 94-AT-2 is! To really show it off requires a white background (i.e. bright white stones).

The lovely 94-HW-1 opened today. My estimate of 12 to 15 blooms is proving correct with 13 buds/flowers showing, in this, its 4th year of bloom. It continues to be a good doer. I have high hopes for it commercially.

It's amazing to look at a number of F1 sxd clones that weren't replanted in the last year of two. They seem to be putting up a reasonable number of flowers. In many cases there are two flowers emerging from the same spot. Rather than one bulb producing two flowers, it's a case of the original bulb splitting and now there are two bulbs large enough to bloom. The amazing part is the fact I tended to find bloom reached a maximum and then started to decline when I kept replanting them back into the same area (over crowded). I guess one distinction is I don't have the number of bulbs I could have had if they had been replanted. The bulblets simply tend to die since they're too deep. Hence the over crowding isn't as severe as it would have been.

Here's a summary of the F2 sophenensis x danfordiae blooms to-date: F2 sxd Analysis
