Jean-Patrick, that is fantastic! What a striking hybrid. I hope it does well for you.

Jean-Patrick,

very different colouring, kind of like flaming gold coins or golden asteroids glowing in the atmosphere.  Do you think it will prove hardy outside?

By the way, I potted on my seedling and it looks good, but has stopped growing (above ground at least).  How long does it take to first blooms?  1 year or so?

Ciao,

Jamie

Jamie,

Most Tropaeolum seedlings are able to flower in their first season ( with the exception of Tr Ciliatum and some Andean species ). So, maybe next spring...

And I won't run the risk of letting a hybrid outside without protection.

I've had no luck germinating Tr ciliatum, any tips? Maybe I should have done a more thorough stratification?

Here's a strange tropaeolum raised from seed last spring. It has obviously Tr Tricolor in its parentage.

A really interesting looking Tropaeolum Jean-Patrick, I love the little flower and the colour with the leaf  :)

Hi, everyone.

Extraordinary hot summer ended and Tropaeolum season has started in Japan.
Thank you, Bill, from your seeds, 5 brachyceras and 1 azureum germinated. They're growing well now.

Thanks to Jean-Patrick, I could see the first flower of T.argentinum. It has just begun flowering!
I sowed the seeds on 23 September. 3 of them germinated within a week or so. I found some flower buds at the end of October. I'm very surprised at rapid growing.

Jean-Patrick, your hybrid looks like T. tenuirostre, that is a hybrid between tricolor and brachyceras. It's lovely.
