More July flowers


I have had a few unexpected flowers open. They are usual for late August/September, but probably opened early because of a little more rain than normal.
First is a xHippeastrelia. This is a cross between Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) and Spreklia.

I was able to show both front and back at the same time!
Then there is an Amarine tubergenii Zwanenburg. This is a cross between Amaryllis and Nerine. Because it has opened early, I am trying to cross it with a white Amarcrinum.

The pot this is in is right next to Agapanthus ‘Flore Plena’. This is a double.

The flowers don’t do a real good job of fully opening.

If the Agapanthus ‘Lilac Flash’ was not near other ones that are blue, you might not notice that it is a nice lilac.

Then there is the odd Hibiscus El Capitolio ‘Bloody Mary’ that started out with several single flowers, but has now become the double it is supposed to be.

Wow! That Hibiscus really is something else Wylie. I've never seen a double. Amazing.

The El Capitolio series is like this (there are 3), and they are also sterile, so propagation by cuttings, only.

Love to see the ones you are growing, thanks Wylie..
