Actually I strapped it to a piece of oak bark and jammed that into an aercone pot of moss. It was supposed to be tempory, but I let it get out of hand, and now its on both sides of the bark with no easy way to transfer it to another mount.Greenpaph said:Ron,
Beautiful flower. Is it growing on an oak branch?
Actually the smell is faintly of fresh fish. Not that bad overall. Has anyone ever seen a young roth put out less than 4 flowers on an umbel?Jon in SW Ohio said:I'd say roth x putidum. Very beautiful, and I'm sure very bait smelling.
Rick said:This is still a small division and not blooming up to full potential. It will often have 5 or more flowers in the umbel. The fringe is very cool on these.
Not sure about your last point Pat. I guess recently Garay kept roth, wendlandianum and a few others (traditionally in Cirrhopetalum) in Bulbo sect cirrhopetaliodes, but not back into genus Cirrhopetalum. Had something to do with petal and sepal attachment points on the collumn.Mahon said:The Bulbo. rothschildianum is more correctly known as Cirrhopetalum rothschildianum...
(I just realized none of what I posted helped anything... )
I can believe it Jon, but on a number of German sites there are pictures of "ornatissimum" that look totally weird with broad striated sepals that don't always stay twisted together??? Also they have a high number of flowers per umbel.Jon in SW Ohio said:I had a past discussion with someone over all these species about a year ago, and I think he said Seigerist has the wrong photo and accidently put rothschildianum's pic there. I don't have a reference to that though, so it may be worth an e-mail to hear from the horse's mouth.
'Red Chimney' is a very famous clone that's garnered 2 AMs, and finally an FCC/AOS in 1991 along with a few CCMs and CCEs...and one of the best roths I've seen.
Did not know this... thanks for the infoRick said:Not sure about your last point Pat.
