    Two clones that are from the same source. With all of the talk about this being a complex of species I am happy to have two imported plants that I think will be the same no matter what gets separated in the future.

    Oh that is spectacular Marni! Is it fragrant?

    And the photography is very cool too!

    Those are great, Marni! Did you get them from a Mexican nursery?

    I'm glad you have plants to propagate within the same known population. I'd very much like to see a write-up of the observed differences between the proposed varieties/species, I hope it gets published soon. Not having that information available ironically makes outcrossing somewhat riskier than selfing or sib-crossing as regards preservation of a discrete species/population ex situ...

    Reyna, yes they are definitely fragrant.

    Nat, I got them from a friend who was killing them. He got them from Mexico. It took him years to get them down to near death and it has taken me years to bring them back.

    I don't know if anyone is working on this group or not, I just hear rumors. One of my fears in flasking is to be selling hybrids inadvertently.

    Very nice. Are the flowers long-lived?

    I don't remember from past years, maybe someone else with a better memory can weigh in. These won't be, I pollinated them.;)

    Nice rehabbing, Marni, they look very healthy. All I've heard about work on this group is from that post by Eric on Jacob's old citrina thread.

    Alexey, the flower on mine lasted about 4 weeks this spring, but the hot weather towards the end might have shortened that. I'd never bloomed it before so that may not be typical.

    Divine! I especially like the one with the white-tipped lip.
