I heard and read, that almost all lilies can be crossed, what are your results? I am going to cross the fragrant easter lily with stargazer ornamental lily, see if I can get the smell with color ☺☺☺

To be honest I might have lost all those seedlings. But I did not sow all the seeds a few years ago, I still have seeds from Shenandoah x L. nepalense and a few weeks ago Shenandoah x Lankon was sown in my greenhouse. I might have some pictures next year. Shenandoah is exelent for hybridizing, can be crossed with many lilies but all the seedlings have trumpet shape.

2 years ago I had Tiger Babies in my greenhouse. I did crosses with it and the 4n asiatic Pearl Jennifer. They was sown this year and have just started to germinate.

I'm going to try and cross hibiscus and cotton, okra and hollyhock because they are all same family. Be neat to see outcome😀😀😀
