Hi Brian, You ask: “Has anyone tried intercrossing N. calcicola x N. bulbocodium and or N. cantabricus var foliosus ? If so did the crosses produce viable seed?” I may have but I doubt it? I haven’t had much success putting bulbocodiums onto other divisions but I think it is worth a try. Calcicola onto a yellow bulbocodium and watieri onto a white one might give pleasing form, and with a bit of luck, some horticultural toughness. I think all the apodanthae are finished here but there are a few lingering bulbocodiums. Lawrence
