From Janis : "Waiting for the second vaccine, hoping the ′′ vaccination office ′′ chaos will not delay it. Meanwhile, I'd let the pots out, those who don't like warmth and also take photos.
Some pictures from last day."

Tulipa turkestanica Schachimardan


edit  to add comment from Janis: " One of my customers asked me about locality where was collected Tulipa turkestanica Schachimardan. Unfortunately I not remember who asked me and now I try to reach him via Facebook. I got this tulip from Arnis and today met him and asked - where is this place. This tulip was collected on mountain pass at heights of river Schachimardan. More detailed reply I found after remembering about Allium schachimardanicum and in Monograph of Reinhard Fritsch about Central Asian alliums I found: (47) Allium schachimardanicum Vved., Opred. rast. Srednej Azii 2: 84, 317 (1971). —Allium "fetisso-vii" sensu Vved., Flora URSS 4: 263 (1935), p. p. min. quoad pl. Alaic. —Type: Kirgizstan: Alaijskij khr[ebet], bass[ein] reki Shakhimardan, ushch[el'e] Mashalang, v teni skal [Alai range, drainage of Shakhimardan river, gorge Mashalang, in the shadow of rocks]
So it was collected in Kirgizstan, Alai mnt. ridge, at place where starts river Shakhimardan. "

 From Janis 16th April
 "Yesterday I was too busy watering pots and I was going for bumble-bee family for pollinating my peaches and apricots, grown instead of bulbs (I'm shortening commercial growing) in one of poly-tunnels - the first flowers opened just yesterday - now no need to "play bee" with paintbrush. So pictures are from former days."

"...Now back to the flowers. Although cruel wind and hard for Gunite to work outside, it's easier for me in greenhouses. Researching microscope crocus leaves, pollinated, photographed and continue to bring out pots - yesterday Eurasian eritrons and cyclamens.

Again back to flowers. Regardless of strong and cold wind, in greenhouse working was easier than on open field for my wife. I'm still bringing out pots with bulbs which don't like hot weather. Last Thursday I brought bumble-bee family to pollinate my apricots and peaches which just started blooming in my former bulb greenhouse."


Apricots started blooming in greenhouse

"Beautiful weather and so much to do that I haven't time to work on pictures, so this morning only very few from garden, not from greenhouse."


Fritillaria raddeana in my outside rockery - the first bloomer this season

687500-1
Tulipa dasystemon - here were thrown out small seedlings which in two years grew up to blooming without any attention

687502-2
Another spot under birch and oak tree where used soil with some seeds in it and may be some bulb were thrown out - now turned to nice field with various Corydalis, Scilla and other bulbs


This one is from greenhouse - one of my very first selections from from Tulipa greigii, made some 40-45 years ago and named 'Sunset' (Saulriets) - excellent grower and best increaser between pure T. greigii (not hybrid with other species).

"The flower festival continues, the culmination of tulips is just beginning, but other 'onions' ( bulbs) are blooming too."


"Tulipa praestans from Hodji-obi-Garm, Varzob gorge, Tajikistan, originally collected in 1982 during 39 years it gave no one offset and no seeds up to 2010 when I got another bulb of this species and crossed both. Almost incredible longevity of single bulb, only one T. fosteriana bulb lives with me longer - 44 years."



"The name Tulipa binutans means that this species twice bends flowers down - at first in buds, before opening and again after end of blooming. Quite unique feature and I can't understand those botanists who regard it as synonymous to T. biflora."



It is the best form of Tulipa hissarica - here blooming in my collection - with undulated leaves and forming up to 4 flowers from bulb. Usually blooms much earlier than other forms, but this year - as the last from my Tulipa hissarica samples.
