Happy New Year!

Here are some more Mrs Macnamara seedlings. This time crossed with Three Ships.

The above clump is a collection of 'chuck outs' which seem to like it in a corner of the Allotment.

I have read somewhere that MrsM is thought to be triploid and therefor sterile. However she regularly sets good seed pods for me. Of course maybe mine isn't actually MrsM!!

The MrsM x Diggory seedling shown last month is something of a bonus cross. I bought Diggory from a commercial supplier. The plants looked so sickly that I binned them before they had even finished flowering! However I salvaged the pollen first!! I have MrsM growing all over the garden in various different environments, so she is in flower, somewhere, for a very long time!

The same to You and all other forumists!

Susan, I know ´Hoggets´ Narrow´, but ´Hogget´s Round´is new to me - would You mind showing a fully opened flower?

Today we enjoyed splendid weather with 16°C, the snowdrops enjoyed the sunshine, too. ´Mrs Macnamara´starting to flower with the last ´Barnes´in the background, and ´Kyre Park´to the right.

A rich harvest, really!
Are there any seedlings with marks other than Mrs M ?

Mariette - this is the best photo I can get of Hoggets Round - it doesn’t open much as we don’t get much sunshine here in Bonnie Scotland as this time of the year - only rain!!

Thank You, Susan - Your foto is perfectly alright for me! Definitely the kind of elegant  G. elwesii I prefer and one for my wish-list! The very special mark of the inners adds much to its charm.  :)

I grow it in an outside plunge bed, with overhead protection from the worst of the rain

Hi Mariette,
       I went back to the allotment to check. See attached photo. The lower line is from another clump of seedlings from the same pod, but those ones are not in such a favourable location, so all together less substantial.

Hi Tim,
thanks for taking pains to show the impressing range of different marks ! I don´t grow that many hybrids with ´Three Ships´, but three from a cross with a G. plicatus with a single mark are starting to flower and  clearly show the influence of T.S. - to be seen here in a few days.  :)
