It struck me as interesting how similar these flowers are, but how different the petals are, so I took the time to investigate.

The photo on the left is Les Dirouilles, which is Sorcerer's Apprentice x Leslie Garay. SA = longifolium x sargentianum. LG = caudatum x longifolium.

The photo on the right is Red Lightning x Grande. RL = sargentianum x humboldtii. Grande = longifolium x humboldtii.

So, they both do have a lot in common, but the one on the left has a little extra longifolium and the one on the right has humboldtii.

I don't remember for sure. It was most likely out of a flask from Chuck Acker years ago, but it could have been from Windy Hill Gardens as a small plant. Mike
