Fritillaria acmopetala 'dark form'
Pollen collection for the breeding program.
Yes, its April fools day. But knowing how long it takes to create viable, commercial bulb hybrids, I may be the fool for beginning this undertaking. Then again, maybe sometime in my mid 50's I'll be able to make some introductions. Moostly playing with some of the more obscure Californians for know. I did manage to find some chromosome counts for some Turkish species and interestingly enough they match the Californians for the most part.
Partly cloudy, 58 degrees. Supposed to be some sun tomorrow.
