March 19, 2002 - Welcome
More beauties!!!

98-NP-1 and 98-NP-2 are from 98-FC-1 x 88-AX-3. This is danfordiae x sophenensis crossed with Çat, Turkey x danfordiae. It would appear in 98-NP-2, that both sophenensis' blue and Çat's wine red are combining to give a near black. In 98-NP-1 the anthocyanins are suppressed.

I'm expecting these are fertile! -- Remember it's in the 2nd generation and beyond that expressions really open up for crosses between two pure species.

I quite like the pale blue markings of 97-DP-1 on its white background.

Still to come: two more whites, a pale yellow, and two danfordiae-like clones.

The past number of days have been on the cold side, so growth has been slow. I have been keenly looking around the garden each day to see what's new. In a sense I'm disappointed that things aren't just popping out. In truth I should be glad; otherwise I'd be going crazy taking pictures and hybridizing. As it is I can take things at a reasonably relaxed pace. The only trouble is both Sunday and Monday it was so cold and windy that it was hard to get a lot done. My hands tended to quickly get lethargic.

It was only today that these three became fully open.

Note: pictures with spaces in their names are appearing as broken links in Netscape 4.7 and lower. Netscape Communicator 6 and MS Internet Explorer 5.5 work fine.

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