Manuel Lima’s viridiflorus seedlings bloom here in Oakley CA between early November and the middle of February – Winter bloomers! This one is marked “Jetfire x viridiflorus.” There are several Lima seedlings marked with this cross. Not all have the numerous florets, but they are all uniformly bright yellow. They open with a greenish cast which fades.
The blooms from many first-generation seedlings from viridiflorus last a long time – easily a month!
