African Lady

 

An interesting second generation Oriental x nepalense hybrid. We first saw this variety in a batch of unnamed seedling's that originated from the discontinued breeding programme of 'Sande'. At the time we asked about buying it, but when nothing come of this, we thought it had been lost forever. Then in the Spring of 2012 we were offered bulbs of a new variety called 'African Lady'. We looked at the picture, that our supplier sent us and thought this looks familiar, then when we were told that it originated from 'Sande' things began to click into place, it is the hybrid we admired a few years ago. During the Chelsea show of 2012 we included 3 plants in our exhibit, they were much admired by visitors. So far we have found it very easy to grow, very strong stems and not too tall, only 80 Cm's in the first season, how tall established bulbs will grow, we don't know yet.
