While the 'Doubles' could be termed 'the new', the single H x orientalis should prove to be just as popular due to the introduction of exciting new 'Hybrids'.

One of the greatest difficulties when propagating the H x orientalis Hybrids, is the length of time it takes to see the results of your breeding, very few H x orientalis will flower before their second winter.

We are continually upgrading our Hybrids as we find better and new ones, some of the original plants we liked are now in the garden as ordinary plants rather than in the breeding program. I think we are up to Mark 4 with the 'Yellow' and are continually looking for better.

One of the interesting developments with H x orientalis of late, is their potential as a cut flower. Recently there has been developed a successful method of treating the flowers to avoid them drooping, which is what has happened after cutting, in the past.

The need for good clear colouring of these flowers will become more and more important as the market is developed and this is another reason we want to be more in control of our breeding program.

Apricot Hybrid

We originally imported the seed for this hybrid from England. A very strong plant with flowers that are of good flat form on a strong, tall stem. Coloured apricot on the front with an interesting red blush on the back. There is some variation in this line, some are more apricot, but those that are less, have very attractive redder backs. There is also a hybrid, although in small numbers as yet, that has very attractive gold nectaries. We are also getting some interesting yellow hybrids from this line.
