I sowed my first batch of Brunsvigia marginata seeds in 1999, and now, 17 years later, I am reaping the benefits. I have had a couple of blooms before this, but this year I have four and will be able to cross pollinate them and get my own seeds. I have several Brunsvigias and Crossynes that have not bloomed yet, but eventually it will happen, and the long wait makes it even more exciting. Out of my four blooming B. marginata one is distinctly different, the flowering umbel being a fetching salmon shade instead of the brilliant scarlet that is more usual. I actually thought this one was going to be white, since the buds appeared green with no hint of red, but gradually they changed color. I was so excited about the possibility of a white one I was checking the greenhouse several times a day. Oh, well. Salmon is very nice, but I have never heard of a white one, and that would have really been something to brag about.
