Scadoxus 2010
« on: July 16, 2010, 10:43:14 AM »
Here is the first blooming for me of Scadoxus cinnabarinus. It comes from tropical Africa so it is not suited for a typical English rock garden!  :-[ Sorry.

Roland, I have never sold Crinum to anyone! I think I am not the people you are referring!

Hi to all,
some Scadoxus pictures.
The first one, Scadoxus `K÷nig Albert┤is an old Hybrid of Scadoxus multiflorus ssp. katherinae x Scadoxus puniceus. It flowers with the leaves in summer and reaches up to 60cm. The leaves are waved as S.puniceus.
The second plant is (99% sure) Scadoxus multiflorus ssp.katherinae, the difference you can see at the leaves, they are not waved, more like the leaves of S.multiflorus. It also flowers whith the leaves.
The hight is 60cm.
S.m.ssp.multiflorus just grows 30cm high and flowers in spring, before leaves emerge. See pictures to compare.
Best wishes,
Renate

Alberto,

wonderful picture of S.cinnabarinus. Hopefully mine will flower next year but this year I am glad to have some other Scadoxus flowering. Did you also made the experience that the summer flowering Scadoxus only flowering really good in really hot summers?
Best wishes,
Renate

Not for the English rock garden, but maybe the Scottish rock garden would be ok ;D ;D ;D

Lovely flower Alberto, maybe grown in a pot in the greenhouse would be ok...you are lucky to be able to grown these plants outdoors.
Thanks for sharing this with us.

Angie, there is a misunderstanding: Italy is not in the tropics! I grow my Scadoxus  in pot.

Hans, you usually tell me I am not patient  :) You should try to fold all those little piece of paper! and then to mount together so you have not to see the glue!  ;D The more difficult is the colour!

 Hans, don't listen to Alberto.... he is lying to you... anyone can see that this flower is for sure made of WAX and not paper!  ;D ;D
