Quite a number of Fall/Winter Bulbocodium seedlings are in bloom at the very start of the New Year.
Z97-14-5 (N. b. obesus x Nylon group) – Selection from a cross made by the late Ed Zinkowski. Large, imposing white bulbocodium hybrid that has a corona like obesus but with the white from Nylon. Nice, early hybrid.
V05-134-19 = {[N. b. obesus x Nylon group) x N. cantabricus foliosus ‘Peter Watkins’] x ‘Mitimoto} – A cross of mine between two bicolor bulbocodium hybrids. Nicely contrasted on opening however….. the few bicolor from this cross seem to “pale out” as they age becoming ivory with a yellowish cast. It sure does have contrast.
Bicolor bulbocodium seedling cross – Mostly whites and a few yellows. Very few bicolor.
Happy New Year to You All, Steve

    Hi Steve, Wow! A nice New Year’s present for you. That’s an amazing 10W-Y – all others I’ve seen have been wishy washy by comparison and requiring a little imagination to see them as bi-colours ! Well done, I hope you will find a few other good ones in the batch. Brian
