Hello again,

here are some photos i made today.

First 2 pictures show plants i have bought this year as "sanguineus Oudtshoorn"...im not sure what species they are but im sure thats not sanguineus.

The next 2 pictures show my "sanguineus Oudsthoorn" bought some years ago from the same source, here im sure thats sanguineus: unspotted leaves that lie flat on the ground and small red leave-margins

I'll be very interested to see what the blooms look like when your humilis hirsutus x coccineus bloom.  I've never had sanguineus bloom; indeed, it barely survives here.  I'm down to one sorry little seedling that is close to 10 years old and still tiny.

I have several different geographic accessions of coccineus:  from Bainskloof, from Richtersveld, and from Gifberg, all from Silverhill Seeds; and one from around Bredasdorp, from the McMasters.  Recently I received one bulb with seed head from a farm in the Bokkeveld Escarpement between Vanrhynsdorp and Nieuwoudtville.  The Gifberg plants have longer, narrower leaves than the other accessions.  The Bredasdorp plants have red margins on the leaves, which the others lack in comparison.

Bernie, your plants are very interesting.  Keep up the good work.

Bernie,

Where did the canaliculate coccineus come from in the wild?  Do the leaves look like that every year?  I'd be interested in a few seeds from selfing that accession.

Jim

P.S.  I agree with Hans about your new forum name.  Good choice!

Thank you Hans and Jim
 :-*

That canaliculate coccineus i got 2 years ago from Lauw de Jager and it has every year this leaves.
I dont know from where hegot the seeds, i must ask him.

Sadly this clone has "instable leaves" and they bend down under their weight
 :(

I sown some seeds from this plant in November but i forgot what "infructescence" ist selfed and the cross with namaquensis. If i can see whats the selfed seedlings i could send you some (or seeds next autumn)

Best wishes

Bernie

Hello forum,

here a photo that shows the fresh arrived 2 bulbs Haemanthus namaquensis some years ago (end of september 2007)
Im sorting my pictures on the computer since yesterday and it thought that picture could be interesting for some of you.

Have a nice sunday

Best wishes

Bernie
