Clintonia andrewsiana seed

Anybody interested in seed? I have just harvested the berries.

Most definitely Trond (if you are overwhelmed with takers); that is a plant with real class! I still have a piece of Ribes speciosum for you.

I have a nice batch of berries filled with seed this fall! Think I have enough for several servings ;)

Ribes speciosum is best propagated with hardwood cuttings in winter, isn't that right?

Trond - If you have enough, I would like some Clintonia andrewsiana too. Am wondering if you would like a cutting from Ribes odorata, if you don't already have it.  You say it comes well from hardwood cuttings and, if it's OK with the customs at your end, I'm sure I could send you some.  Fran

I'll get in line for the Clintonia seed, too, if the line hasn't gotten too long already.  I was planning on collecting Ribes odoratum seed this season, but this is the first year the berries have actually shriveled while still on the plant - not a good sign, and just inspecting now, I don't find any seed anyway.  First time ever!

The Lycoris squamigera pods seem to be coming along...

I think I have enough for you too, Fran ;) I don't have R. odorata. Could be interesting to try some cuttings. Without soil I think they'll pass the customs, but you never are sure :-\

You are in, Rick! I hope the Lycoris pods grow really fat  ;D BTW, the Thuja koraiensis cuttings do well!

Seeing your post Trond reminded me that i had promised a piece to a good friend so i managed to divide a growth off the side of my clump this evening .I probably should have done this earlier to minimise root damage .......  :rolleyes:

I think all of the Clintonias are Tim . :)
I have a 3 year plant of C. umbellatum *umbellulata raised from seed yet to flower--- seedlings of C.uniflora and maybe C. borealis,(i can't locate that pot for the moment),----- and C.udensis sown about 6 months ago is just breaking through the surface ......

C.uniflora is the one i'm most keen on seeing in bloom.

*Edited.

Dave, I have two clumps but only one which flowers. I have not dared to divide any although I would like to have them other places too. I also have some seedlings of different Clintonias but they are only 1 year old.

I do grow Clintonia umbellata (note spelling), which each year promises to be an excellent plant when in early foliage, but it grows lax and flops, the umbels of white flowers not overly impressive.  In a dozen years, it has never produced seed.  Clintonia borealis is native here, a nice plant with attractive foliage, but subdued in flowering with greenish yellow blooms, and blue berries.  I have not tried gowing it.

Thanks for the 'heads up' regarding the spelling Mark --i went out and checked my label and it shows C.umbellulata --not quite what i had posted above  ;D

Checking http://www.theplantlist.org/ it shows C.umbellata is a synonym of C.umbellulata.
I've edited my post above.

Cheers Dave.

Excellent catch Dave; I quickly googled for the correct name spelling, but didn't realize that C. umbellata and C. umbellulata are both published names, both come up equally in Google, but that umbellulata is the accepted spelling; thanks for bringing that to our attention. :)  Of course, I didn't run out at night with a flashlight to check my label (although I've been know to do that).
