Easter on the horizon


Look at all the flowers on this F. Purdyi x F. Biflora hybrid!



This is a Fritillaria glauca, notice the cut stump treatment on the ripening seed pod on the left. This was fertilized by Fritillaria eastoodiae.

The cut stump treatment is supposed to help the pollen make it down the pollen tube better. I guess we will see could make an interesting hybrid.

Weird year much of the early stuff was really early and the late stuff hasn't showed up yet.

Rain, wind....temps in the 50's.

Cheers to warmer weather in California this weekend.
