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.
