Some of the flowers in the Canberra show will warm hearts elsewhere. One of the sensations was a superb smooth specimen of Mesa Verde shown by Chris Ryan.

Graham showed some pictures of some of my splits. Champion div.11 was a seedling from Bill Bender’s 90/221, Grapillon x Pops Legacy, crossed with my 01_76 (Moomba x Redlands Too)


With the benefit of sunlight, albeit a bit tired after the show, the others were:-

Menehay x (Redlands Too x Impeccable)

Flash Affair x (Mondragon x Redlands Too)

Hijack x [(Ice Follies x Cheer Leader) x Mondragon)]


Grand Champion was a faultless Davis seedling 25_08 shown by John Woodfield.

Champion Div.3 was Alibi shown by Sheldrick/Ryan

Keira bulbs showed a lot of interesting new things. I particularly like the advances in the triandrus hybrids.


A very nice intermediate: –

Some pink miniatures were shown but I think this is from the intermediate section.

Champion miniature was a  Keira 1Y-Y.

One response to “Around the Show”

    Thanks for the photos Lawrence.

    We missed the show as Dad and I traveled down to Leongatha for the Australian championships.

    Good to see some of the flowers I missed – love the splits

    25-08 is a very consistent and vigorous thing that we probably underrated to start with as it was not what we were looking for from the cross – it was meant to be a split.  John picked it out in the patch at last years visit – there were 20 or so of it flower that day.  We also showed it in the winning championship in Leongatha
