Nobilis x Mirabilis (first flower)
« on: August 14, 2015, 09:13:24 »
This is a first flower of this specie cross between a Nobilis and a Mirabilis. It took 7 years to flower and has produced two offsets before it flowered. It has a nice compact shape plant, the notched leaf, and the median stripe on the leaves. I like it a lot.

Enjoy

Carrie what was the logic (not meant in a nasty way) to cross two plants, both closed flowers and slow growing with each other ?. Is the offspring maybe going to be used in a special breeding program or was it done out of curiosity.

Nice outcome either way. Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards
Eddie.
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Lol, both Eddie. Curiosity as well as future use in my interspecific breeding programme with White Lips and Belgian bronzes as parent plants. The belgium plants to decrease size of plants and speed up growing and flowering time. This way we can get both the Mirabilis  and Nobilis genes into interspecifics with only one cross. Mirabilis for stronger, hardier plants with beautiful leaves and Nobilis for interesting flower colours in the first generation. All with a plan Eddie...... :smile:

Kind regards

The length of the peduncle is impressive.

7 years to flower the worlds 2 slowest Clivia hybrid is a job well done.
