My own cultivar – a seedling of P. gibbosum ‘Maroon’, 2011.


‘Inigo’

My own hybrid from 2016 – ‘Flora Midnight’ x ‘Lara Oracle’.


‘Laurenceanum’

Another old hybrid of P. fulgidum x P. lobatum, or more probably ‘Ardens’ x P. lobatum from ca. 1827.


P. ovale x P. tricolor

A hybrid that originates from seeds from South Africa, around 2006.


‘Schottii’

The third old hybrid of P. fulgidum and P. lobatum – before 1869.

Hayden

This plant is a seedling from ‘Flora Midnight’.
Whilst ‘Flora Midnight’ has very dark flowers, the flowers of this plant became very pale.
Perhaps because it has P. anethifolium back in its ancestors.
