Some May flowers

Post by edds » Thu May 06, 2021 11:38 am

Thought I'd share a few more flowers with you all to hopefully enjoy!

Really impressed with the Chamaelobivia hybrids this year and can't wait until they're all bigger plants for even more flowers! 'Lincoln Whirlwind' was open for three days.

Too cold in GOC. Plants confused.
Plenty of buds
Those are superb flowers
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.

Thanks everyone. Only really started buying a couple of Chamaelobivia to cross with other stuff but they've really impressed me and I can't help collecting more!

Chamaelobivia 'Lincoln Stardust'
Another snuck out in May. Much more like a small Echinopsis (which I know they are considered now) than the more typical Chamaelobivia flower I think. They were just over 3" across at their best.

Stunning flowers Ed.

I would not be surprised if that hybrid has an Echinopsis grandparent or two.
