Perhaps Ian and Maggi are snoozing :)
John, Ron Ratko is an American seed collector, Oregon I think. He has a devastatingly tempting seed list each year and it includes many collections of erythroniums, fritillarias, alliums, calochortus, penstemons and in fact everything from the western parts of the USA.

I'll send his address if you like, let me know, or M and I might do that before me.

The quality of Ron's seeds is superb. EVERYTHING germinates!!!

John
the pictures you showed of Harvington Snowgoose clearly show the wide filaments which indicate E.oregonum is involved, I can well accept that E. californicum is the other parent if it is a hybrid as there are several crosses around with that parentage - but it is definitely not pure californicum.
I will send you Ron ratkos details by email.

Hi Alan welcome to the forum and thanks for reporting your multi headed E. revolutums.
