red C caulescens
« on: November 07, 2012, 12:33:55 »
Two photos of our red C caulescens.  It flowers each year, but produces rather weak looking seedlings, it possibly needs to be crossed with another, but not too sure how dominant the red colour is.  It was grown from a seedling given to us and has not yet produced any side shoots.

Very special one, Bridget,

Nothing other "dark red" to hand for pollinating.
How are the seedlings looking, are they strong pigmented?

However, thanks for sharing.

Hi Joerg,  the seedlings are no different from seedlings of the same age as a normal caulescens, ie nothing like a caulescens x mirabilis cross which are seriously dark.  I had thought about crossing with a very red nobilis to increase the flower count or with a broader leaf caulescens if it opens in time.
