Yesterday while I was out in the garden, I had fun watching the bees pollinating the crocuses. Lots of pollens had fell off the anthers and were caught inside the flower and got a crazy idea. I grab the pot of amaryllis from the house and picked one giant purple crocus. I cross pollinated it with Cybister Lima. I don't know if anybody has done this before or if the amaryllis will take the crocus pollens. I do not know if there is compatibility. I am not a botanist or anything, just a gardener that occasionally like to experiment with plants.
Cybister Lima's bloom.
All three stigmas are coated with crocus pollens. The fourth flower at the back is self pollinated a couple of days ago.
This is Cybister Rosario. Two of its flowers has taken Cybister Lima. Cross pollinated on the 9th of March. The seed pods are swelling up nicely.
