Ulla Silkens (will need to get another one, I wanted one that looked like a regular reginae and not alba)
Hi, Linus, I like your white Ulla! I think I have some that look very similar to regular reginae (I usually cull them but believe there are a couple as examples of the other look). My Ulla's are still several weeks from blooming - around June 1st usually. I will send you picks of the flowers and if there is one you like, I will send it to you this Fall. I get the "regulars", whites like this one, and white with purple spots (my personal favorites) all from single seed pods.
I'm digging the Ulla Silkens. I like the whiter flowered ones, but I agree with you and Ron that the heavily spotted variations are even more appealing. I also find it fascinating that while both parents would struggle to even survive a few seasons in such a hot summer area (particularly C. flavum), this hybrid does just fine. That's a good argument for growing Cyp hybrids over the species.

Very nice! For information, kentuckiense x candidum is registered as Mason's Birthday.
