Roscoea tibetica Pale Pink

10th July 2005

This pale pink flowered form of Roscoea tibetica turned up in a batch of typical R.tibetica imported from China by Fir Tree Farm Nurseries. It is attractive, and set copious seed by self pollination, so I hope for some interesting seedlings next year.

The flower has pale, almost white expremeties to the flower parts, with a slight darkening in the base of the tube. The colour of the flower is probably controlled by a single recessive gene, so the plant should breed true if self pollinated. There is some scope for slight variation in the depth of the colour.
