Daffnetters,
This Lima seedling grows and divides well here. Notice the lobed cup – inherited from viridiflorus. The seed parent is unknown.
I’ve not considered the seedling worthy of a name – but perhaps its strong growth will change my mind.

    Robert,

    I do rather like this cultivar.  If it is a prolific bloomer, it may well be worth registering.  The form and slightly wild effect are very attractive to my eyes.  I don’t know how common this look would be amongst hybrids and I do think one should not randomly register without some good reason, but, if the plant is important to your own hybridizing and has garden value, then I would register it. Do you know how much cold it will take?  How about ‘Spiders from Mars’ or ‘Plan 9 from Outerspace’?

    Ciao für now,

    OH!  “Plan 9 from Outer Space”, one of my all time favorite movies.  It was the absolute worst science fiction movie ever made.  Jamie, you’re ok!

    OK, a good second, if a bit silly (which is another category), but it doesn’t star Bela Lugosi, which brings lots of extra points!

    Is this getting tooooo off-topic? >:o
