Hopefully about 60 large-flowered hybrid plants, to come.
March 2003; new large-flowered hybrid seedlings' vines grow slowly at first, then begin to extend rapidly from around the first week of March. By the 20th the vines are easily around 12-18" in length. Some already carry flower buds:
These are getting crowded and at the above stage plants need to be re-positioned, so that they have plenty of light and room to develop.
Seedlings first flowering in 2003
Note, April 2003
Total disaster as 57 out of 59 new large-flowered hybrid seedlings are ravaged by mystery ailment.
Bad ones Survivor, but only just, on left; better one on right
New seedling G47B (below) first flowers:
A very fine white. This seedling germinated after only 170 days.
New seedling G47K.
The flowers were much more attractive than this snapshot might suggest! The appealing form of the tepals and the silkiness of the white don't really show fully in this shot.
New Seedling G49I.
A pleasant-enough blue. This flower will alter somewhat, next year.
Another fine plant grown as C. patens. Germination time 305 days.
New seedling G65D first flowers:
Another seedling of King Edward VII. Germination time was 350 days.

A new daughter plant of C. King Edward VII. Germination time 363 days.
27th April 28th April 29th April 30th April
Huge first flowers; > 7"; big, bold, boat-shaped tepals will make a grand mature plant, even though it's not unique in colour. I expect the colour to change somewhat, next time around.
Another strapping blue! Will make a fine plant when mature.
Grown as C. patens. Germination time 455 days.
