Another amazing batch Jens and testament to your hybridizing wizardry as well.

Hoping these are not the last as we saw plenty more beautiful shoots a bit later than this.  I'd post some of your plant's shhots from my visit but they were slides.

My hybrid "Tessa Dane" ( campylogynum x brachyanthum) has been crossed again with campylogynum. Seedlings with yellow flowers
still have evidence of brachyanthum. (from an earlier post)
Here a photo from that cross.

This and lowndesii in but a few days is more than one can handle. I may have to borrow Lesley's smelling salts.

Very nice plant! How big do you think it will grow?

Here  are some of mine with new growth:

First three with names (if I recall rightly?!):

Rh bureavii with old and new growth showing the different colours of the indument and kesangia also with indument:

296865-0    296867-1    


Rh lacteum is still waiting but sutchuenense is soon finished:

296869-2    296871-3    


And two without names, the first is a seedling and the second has a name (it is a species), but I have forgot it!

296873-4    296875-5

John, is Galax native to your place? I have been looking for seed of that plant! ;D

Last one maybe argyrophyllum> ::)

A very healthy lacteum!

I assume your question re: size was directed to Jens and his campylogynum hybrid.

Yes, I think you are right! argyrophyllum it is, I remember now. Thanks (and for bracts too ;D).

Isn't this your post?

No it's not native but I plunk pieces here and there in the forest. They take a very long time to get normal-sized leaves but initially spread as you can see.  Leaves can get 12cm+ across when in garden conditions.  I always seem to miss the seed, it does self-seed. Will keep an eye out for seed on bigger garden plants for you.

re: argyrophyllum maybe 'Chinese Silver'.  ???

It was a very long wait for flowers on quinquefolium. I asked Wada when mine would flower and he said "corky bark, corky bark". As predicted when the bark got corky the flower bud set.  Only one that first year.

Here in Denmark the flowering is almost over
but a new season is coming up

New growth season.

This is for some roxieanums even more exciting
than the flowering one.

Jens you are right also pachysanthun, bureavii and othere are in my view better in new growth than in flower and some just great in both
