Loved the picture of Reverend Hailstone in the December string.  Please post some pictures when in flower.

All beautiful but G. graecus is outstanding. G. 'Fotini' is very striking also.

What a great start to my day Melvyn.  The first and last are particularly eye catching.

No sign of my rizehensis,

Martin, I have reginae-olgae just opening. Could I do some cross pollinating? Will early elwesii do?

I've never tried crossing reg olgae with elwesii but it'd be worth a try. Reg olgae (just like nivalis) crosses easily with plicatus, and elwesii crosses easily with plicatus, plus elwesii has similar nuclear DNA weight to plicatus. So yeah, give it a try.

not sunny enough to tempt much into opening today, Colossus and Fieldgate Prelude in the greenhouse.
