Some of my seedlings from last year, these Western American Hybrids are my new hobby and they do well in this hell hole climate, only 2 seasons here, Hell on Earth and hell Frozen Over. I take so many photos it takes many weeks to go through them and I cannot tolerate sitting for very long at a time so it was really slow this year.
I have had both of my hips replaced this winter, I am very slowly getting better - it would be faster if I was in a climate that wasn't toxic to me. My best therapy is walking. I try to walk as much as possible but there are many, many days I can't go outside here. It is even worse during the Hell on Earth season. Then I am just too sick from the heat to do anything at all but hibernate - inside.

Really nice Lisa! What species are you using in your hybrids?

Feb 28, 2018 8:48 AM CST
There is pardalinum in all of them, some are with parvuum (pink), kelloggii, columbianum, and parryi, in those photos. Newer crosses are with more western American species but nothing counts until it reaches bloom size. L. parryi gives me fragrant ones and the color yellow. I have crossed many of the hybrids with new species as I obtain pollen and with other hybrids.

Lisa, do your hybrids have any extra vigor and how long are they taking you from seed to flower?

Mar 2, 2018 7:35 PM CST
So far the ones with pardalinum certainly do have more vigor, the PITPARS can bloom 1 yr form seed here If I tried harder. It is mostly 2 yrs here I could get trumpets to bloom in 1 year at home but it is 2-3 years here. Since I have no other species blooming yet all I have to breed with are the various pardalinum crosses for now.
