|Sorry I have not been active on the forum. My hip is very bad now and I cannot sit, drive or walk for long. And my computer is old and ornery and it can take several attempts to upload a photo to some sites. It works much better on the Blooming Auction and NOT at all for an email attachment.
Anyway I have many new seedlings blooming this year, here is my current favorite, a seedling from a hybrid with kelloggii in it that I had named "Gorjust" crossed with another seedling of the same parentage - I am calling it "big red" for now, I actually have 2, one with big spots as in the photo and one much like it with small spots. so I have Big Red Small Spot and Big Red Big Spot. Easier for me to remember than the hybrid number.
And a hybrid with parryi in it that is fragrant, it also has a slight pink frost which is not showing in the photo:
Many more of my PitPar (Pitkin Marsh lily X L. parvum, pink form) seedlings bloomed this year but I have not yet gone through the photos, here is one that faciated quite nicely this year:
All of the PitPar hybrids are pink or orange, that is a F2 generation, the first cross Pitkin X parvum were pink, I crossed the siblings with each other and got the variation and still have the astonishing vigor. I am now crossing those with other Western American species and hybrids and hope to get new hybrid seed (NOT easy in this toxic climate)

|Really great stuff Lisa! I wish I could get my hands on some pink North Americans! They are probably the most under hybridized section!|
