Remarks from the Weekly KAVB Flower Show - Lisse
« on: February 04, 2008, 11:13:34 PM »
Edit in January 2011: This thread is formed from the pages of previous years for Luit van Delft's musings from the weekly flower show at Lisse, in the Netherlands, of the KAVB, which translates in English as   Royal General Bulbgrowers' Association

When clicking this link: http://www.ishs.org/sci/icralist/49.htm  you will come to the ICRA Report Sheet showingthose bulbs for which KAVB is the official registrar.

Luit's remarks begin in 2008:



In this Topic I'll show you mostly pictures of bulbous plants, which I hope Forumists like to see.
This week I saw the following interesting items:

Colchicum triphyllum

Colchicum raddeanum from Sarayen Alvares  ski-resort in Iran (probably the smallest Colchicum?)

Ipheion Jessie, which might be the most blueish form.

Iris hircana, very rich flowering pot

Narcissus Orange Queen, a nice jonquill

Tulipa Abra

Quite interesting, Luit! A good opportunity to become aware of some new bulbous plants.

I think this might be Colchicum raddeana in Iran.  We were lucky, it was flowering at the snow line at about 3000m.

Great idea - and you've shown me two Colchicum that I have not seen before already!

Ipheon Jessie looks exactly like Ipheon Rolf Fiedler ... have you seen that one Luit?

Thank you Tony,
this Colchicum triphylla I allready posted in "Which Colchicum" where Gerd told me what it is.

The Ipheion looks on the picture like Rolf Fiedler and it is a selection of it.
The experts in the committee told us that it is a darker form, alas I couldn't get the right blue with my camera.

Arthur, that's great to see this picture, comparing to the poor little things in a pot!
It seems a wonderful plant.
The grower was glad that it's flowering with him and still alive.
When I meet the man who found it Ill ask him what he thinks.

and I forgot a Narcissus of which the name is probably not o.k., because there is another bigger trumpet with the name Douglas Bank, raised in Scotland.

Luit
I will try to find my photos of Frit reuteri in Iran.  The ones you have taken in pots compare favourably.  It is a difficult Frit to grow.

Please keep these wonderful shots coming

Thank you both.
I was told by the grower it is easier than F. michailovskii.    ??

Luit, why do you think this narcissus is NOT 'Douglas Bank' ? It looks fine to me like what we grow here as 'Douglas Bank'  Ours will not be out for  some time here in Aberdeen, though, but, of scourse... in a pot... things can be early.

Maggi, I just thought id doesn't belong to the mostly bigger flowering division I.
Now I found out it is a N. minor seedling and I could not find it under N. minor Douglas Bank.
But it seems to be a miniature.
Should I call it just N. Douglas Bank, (without minor) then??
