Another new hybrid P. 'Isis'.

Post by EWortman on Sat Nov 26, 2011 3:58 am

Hello friends,

Here is another late 2011 hybrid, first blooming October 27th. This one I believe to be the largest of all of our hybrids so far at almost 5 inches. I expect that size to only increase next year, so this is an extremely exciting hybrid for us. The peduncle is approximately 8 inches, and the flower faces diagonally up. P. 'Isis' , (pronounced "eye-sis"), is named after the Egyptian goddess of fertility due to its extremely efficacious pollen. The photos were taken on another ugly, very windy day with no sun whatsoever, so hopefully next year I can share some better pictures.

Though I usually abhor botanical photos with flash, I simply couldn't get enough natural light to get a halfway decent representation of the colors. This still doesn't do it justice, but it's better than nothing.

As with most of our hybrids, if this performs well and has reasonable hardiness, it will be for sale at Brushwood Nursery eventually.
