Rhodophiala bifida ‘White Surprise’…and more

We’ll never get tired of growing plants from seed and the anticipation of seeing what unique traits might arise.  This week, we were thrilled to “discover” our first white oxblood lily, Rhodophiala bifida in our research trials.  We deflowered it this week with its own pollen in the hopes of producing more white clones. Fingers crossed.  Below are a few of our other seedling selections that will be coming soon.

Rhodophiala bifida ‘Hill Country Red’ is the industry standard clone

In 2017, we released our first clonal selection, Rhodophiala ‘Carmencita’

Coming in the next couple of years is a very early flowering seed strain with orange red flowers that we’ve named Rhodophiala ‘Red Baron’

Here is a still unnamed 2013 seed selection.

Here another unnamed selection with nice white central striping.

Another lovely pink 2013 selection

One final shot.  As you can see, it’s easy to get carried away with seedling selections.
