[ Orchid (Cymbidium Memoria Amelia Earhart 'Elizabeth Hatfield') | Posted on June 22, 2018 ]

This is a triploid (3N) plant and has been known to be fertile, although the results were underwhelming - the sole example of offspring I have seen took 8 years to flower:

[ Lily (Lilium 'Cootamundra') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

An unregistered hybrid created by Bryan Tonkin.

[ Lily (Lilium 'Sylvan Angel') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

An unregistered hybrid created by Bryan Tonkin.

[ Lily (Lilium 'Show Off') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

This is the original registered cultivar and is distinct from the unregistered (but commercially available) Australian cultivar bred by Bryan Tonkin: Lily (Lilium 'Show Off (Tonkin)').

[ Lily (Lilium 'Show Off (Tonkin)') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

This is an unregistered cultivar and will never be registered with the name 'Show Off', as an existing cultivar (Lily (Lilium 'Show Off')) from 1983 already exists in the RHS Register with this name.

[ Lily (Lilium 'Connecticut Bronze') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

The RHS Register lists two different possible parentages for this Lily. Of interest is that the parent 'Connecticut Morn' may not be the registered cultivar, as Lily (Lilium 'Connecticut Morn') also has multiple parentages, one of which lists 'Connecticut Bronze' as a parent!

[ Lily (Lilium 'Connecticut Morn') | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

The RHS Register lists three different parentages for this Lily, including as with Lily (Lilium 'Connecticut Bronze'). It is suspected that multiple plants were given this name, but only one actually registered. This is borne out by the fact that Lily (Lilium 'Connecticut Bronze') has a 'Connecticut Morn' listed as a parent.

[ Lily (Lilium Fighter Group) | Posted on June 21, 2018 ]

According the RHS Register, the Fighter Group are seedling selections from Lily (Lilium Stenographer Group). In general, they are shorter than the Stenographer Group with flowers typically more bowl-shaped and up-facing.

[ Lily (Lilium 'Tetra Black Beauty') | Posted on June 17, 2018 ]

This is the tetraploid version of Lily (Lilium 'Black Beauty').

[ Lily (Lilium x parkmanii 'Tetra Journey') | Posted on June 17, 2018 ]

This is the colchicine-treated version of Lily (Lilium x parkmanii 'Journey's End').

[ Lily (Lilium 'Pink Pearl Group') | Posted on June 17, 2018 ]

This is mentioned only as a parent of Lily (Lilium Mabel Violet), but is probably a synonym for Lily (Lilium Pink Pearl Trumpets).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Rosefieldense) | Posted on June 13, 2018 ]

This hybrid grows to be quite a large plant with probably some of the largest blooms in the genus. The example I have seen had the spikes staked upright, although normally they would be arching. It is also strongly perfumed due to both parents being fragrant.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Sox Up 'New Horizon') | Posted on June 11, 2018 ]

This is a tetraploid and results from the cross of Orchid (Cymbidium Red Sox) and Orchid (Cymbidium lowianum 'Comte d' Hemptinne') (4N). It is reported to have 20+ blooms per spike.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Little Treasure) | Posted on June 11, 2018 ]

This grex is 50% Golden Leaf-Edge Orchid (Cymbidium floribundum) and classified as a micro-mini. Andy Easton of New Horizon Orchids comments that the next goal is to improve the colour.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Memoria Amelia Earhart 'New Horizon') | Posted on June 11, 2018 ]

Memoria Amelia Earhart has the potential to produce stable brushmark patterns in its offspring, courtesy of Orchid (Cymbidium Hazel Tyers 'Santa Maria'). New Horizon Orchids (using this particular clone) have gotten some impressive results:

Orchid (Cymbidium Fritz Wunderlich)
Orchid (Cymbidium Horizon Flight)
Orchid (Cymbidium Jussi Bjorling 'Tango Time')
Orchid (Cymbidium Starman)

NHO's seedlings of Cym. Jussi Bjorling and Cym. Starman in particular will be interesting to follow.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Elf Dance 'Valentine's Day') | Posted on June 11, 2018 ]

This is a known tetraploid (4N) and is expected to bloom twice a year (late winter for Valentine's Day and late summer).

[ Lily (Lilium 'Golden Matrix') | Posted on June 4, 2018 ]

This cultivar does not seem to be as hardy as the original Lily (Lilium 'Matrix') or the sport Lily (Lilium 'Sunset Matrix') (at least in my growing conditions). It did not bloom as well as either of those on its first year and then failed to return in the second year (unlike 'Matrix' and 'Sunset Matrix').

[ Lily (Lilium 'Tresor') | Posted on June 4, 2018 ]

This cultivar doesn't seem to do well in the garden. I had it in a pot and the first year it bloomed well; however, it did not emerge for the second year (a careful examination in early summer showed a least one bulb still present, however). At the end of the second season I intended to transplant them into a garden bed, but all four bulbs in the pot had disappeared.

In regards to fertility, it is a poor parent - all pods failed, but it was able to set viable seed on Lily (Lilium 'Pearl Jennifer'), despite having a low reported pollen fertility.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Kiata 'Royal Velvet') | Posted on May 25, 2018 ]

At minimum, this clone exists as a tetraploid (4N).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Kiata 'Nightshade') | Posted on May 25, 2018 ]

This clone exists in both diploid (2N) and tetraploid (4N) forms and is reported to be slow-growing and compact for a standard Cymbidium.
