Hi all,

I have recently finished harvesting and sorting my Aurelian Lilium hybrid seeds. Inspired by Rick's The thread "Martagon seed giveaway 2017" in Lilies forum, I thought I'd offer my excess seed and OP seed to those that are interested (about 300 seeds in total). Seed has been candled, but there are a few that I am still dubious about and so am not certain they'll germinate. I have marked these below.

These crosses should all exhibit immediate epigeal germination. If you're new to starting Liliums from seed, have a look at The thread "Starting lilies from seeds" in Lilies forum.

Please send me a treemail with the crosses you would like. Some crosses have low seed counts, so I'll allocate seed in order of receipt and sort them to send out after the 27th of May (all requests must be in by this date, Australian Eastern Standard Time). I will update this thread if all seed is allocated prior to that date.

Please be aware of the import restrictions for your country - if you need any permits, etc. to import seed, please ensure that you meet the requirements and provide me with the necessary details so I can send you seed.

PR-G04 X PR-G05
Both were small plants, so I can't be sure what the stems will be like when mature.

PR-G16 X PR-G07
PR-G16 has a tendency for the tepals to ruffle and twist in the heat. PR-G07 kept its shape reasonably well.

PR-G19 X PR-G11

PR-G80 (OP - most likely by G81)
This one came up at an angle... and kept going at an angle.
Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/ce385f Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/740c71

PR-G81 (OP - most likely by G80) (very low seed count from this pod)
Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/600739 Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/eebba1

PR-T03C (OP) - dubious as to viability of seed
Pedicels tend to arch on this one.
Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/f7e4c5 Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/b0ebee

PR-W08 (OP) - dubious as to viability of seed
Suspect this is actually out to down facing, as it had blown over; lifted up stem to take the photo.
Thumb of 2017-05-09/Australis/69e03c

PR-W18 (OP) - no photo. Pale green blooms on a raceme.

Unlabelled #1 - no photo. Never saw it in bloom; 1.2m stem with 9 blooms on a raceme. Dubious as to viability of seed.

Unlabelled #2 - no photo. Never saw it in bloom; 1.8m stem with 8 blooms incl. secondaries on a raceme.

Unlabelled #3 - no photo. Never saw it in bloom; 1.2m stem with a raceme.

There is seed of most crosses (except PR-G16 X PR-G07) still available for anyone who is interested. Please note that I will be sorting and mailing out seed after the 27th of May AEST, so if you are interested, please send me a treemail in the next few days.
