Roscoea scillifolia Pink x tibetica Pink

23rd June 2011

With these hybrids I am never certain that I haven't nurtured a stray seedling in the pot. This purple flower was a surprise - I had hoped that the pink scillifolia and the pink tibetica were the consequence of equivalent genes, in which case I was hoping for a pink flower. Well, that's not what I have so now I have to come up with a new theory.
This is the flower shape I was expecting and it doesn't look like any of the species that commonly produce rogue seedlings about the place so I am watching and waiting (I should be raising baby seedlings from it but I forgot).
