Hi Gang, I have not been keeping up with my Crinum Web site, but not for lack of trying. You all know how hobbies go; too much interest and not enough time. However, recently, I visited Marcelle and got new photos of her seedlings from Crinum x 'Burgundy'. This plant has produced some amazing progeny over time. Marcelle has identified 4 in years past that had the garden qualities she wanted. Though they have similar colors, they are different from each other. For instance, Burgundy No. 2 has pendant flowers with recurving tips, reminescent of Crinum x 'White Queen'. Burgundy No. 3 produces very large flowers, with 6 inch floral tubes and 6 1/2 inch petals. The Burgundy hybrids are pink, but they are better than pink. They have a bit of salmon in them, they remind me of Crinum x 'Bradley' that way, but they also remind me a bit of pale Crinum x 'Claude Davis'. This year Marcelle has found a possible new "keeper." She's calling it Burgundy No. 5; most of these plants have not been named, but she has named Burgundy No. 1 'Lady Chameleon' because it sometimes produces petals with white streaks. Marcelle is increasing all 5 of the plants with the goal of distributing them when she has enough bulbs; they do produce offsets. Anyway, while I haven't put all the info on the Web site, I did put unedited images online. They are very large files 1.5 to nearly 4.0 Mb--so they can be slow to download and view. If you want to see them, they are sorted by folders (burgundy 1, burgundy 2, etc.), with various photos of each plant in the folders. If you only have time to see one photo, check out the photo of Burgundy No. 3 at: LINK: Burgundy No. 3 http://opuntiads.com/photos/burgundy%20seedlings/… All the images can be found at: LINK: Images of Burgundy Hybrids http://opuntiads.com/photos/burgundy%20seedlings/ NOTE: The colors are not exactly correct on these photos; I have not done the color balance to account for the super sunny day when the photos were taken. They are a very pleasant pink or pale salmon-pink; they are not purplish and have no bubblegum pink in them. The link below that shows some mixed seedlings, seems to show the colors best: LINK: Mixed Burgundy Seedlings Growing Together (Burg No 1, Burg No 2, and Burg No 3). http://opuntiads.com/photos/burgundy%20seedlings/… Cordially, Joe Hot and humid today (must be 95 F), rain last night, Amarcrinum still blooming happily, Ellen Bosanquet starting as is Lorraine Clark and Rose Parade.
