Beautiful flower. Is it growing on an oak branch?
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.
Mahon said:The Bulbo. rothschildianum is more correctly known as Cirrhopetalum rothschildianum...
(I just realized none of what I posted helped anything... )
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.
Rick said: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.
