These are the early results of Øystein's cross of the cultivars Ilga and Stellar Light. We traded seed and he offered me seed of this cross he made. One parent is a down facing apricot flower. The other a tango type. Perhaps Øystein can supply us with some pics of the parents. Eight bloomed of the dozen or so seedlings this year.

#1 - perhaps a little more orange tone to the subtle color

#4-notice the brown nectary "tubes". The flower didn't seem to want to open anymore.

#5-a curious thing with these anthers that seem to bear no pollen: they seem to separate in "threads".

I think they all look pretty nice, except for #4 perhaps. I like #1 too. Nice job growing out the seeds, Lefty.

Number one have the fathers colour in the middle. Will take som pictures soon of the parents. Both lilies are bred in Latvia. When crossing one tango with one not tango you'll get a big variation.

This is a seedling from another cross, not my own cross. Have polinated the flowers and taken the pollen on other flowers.Thumb of 2011-07-17/grapus/0a3c2b

Thanks Øystein. If you don't mind, I am going to copy your photos for my records. Did you grow any seedlings from this Ilga x Stellar Light cross? Hopefully, when Anthony gets his to flower, he'll post them here on this same thread, too.

Gee, and I never got my seedlings planted out. They are still in a pot! (Actually, I didn't think they were big enough to bloom anyway.) Most often, when I give away plants, they always seem to grow better for the other person than me!!!

The bit of ruffling on the petal edges are a nice feature on that purple one too, Øystein.

In late winter/early spring, with the first really warm weather coming an entire month early (and for the whole month), I tried my best to keep the lilies from sprouting too early, since surely more normal cold weather was still to come. So the mulch stayed over the beds as slong as possible, trying to keep the ground cold to delay sprouting. Unfortunately, the ground never got as cold this past winter as normal, either, and that compounded the problem.

Consequently, when I finally removed the thick mulch, younger lilies had already awakened, and some weaved horizontally under the mulch before growing vertically. Even the ones that grew straight from the beginning had naturally weaker stems because they assumed they would be supported by the mulch. So many of my seedlings lay prostrate this year, looking "sad" but otherwise healthy. Here are some pics of this year's crop of Ilga x Stellar Light. Numbers do not correlate with the numbered photos from last year (and earlier in this thread).

(The upside here is that I had no problems with late frosts when they did come.)

Then you have something to look forward to. And the bulbs would have grown large this year too.
