Fritillaria 'Lentune Waxwing'
The result of pollinating Fritillaria whittallii with Fritillaria grandiflora.
The seed was sown in September 2007 and this clone was separated out in 2016.
The sowing resulted in a very good germination and when they first flowered showed a complete range from those with strong leanings towards the seed parent to those where the pollen parent had made a very significant contribution to the flower colour and shape.
This clone more resembles its mother, but does show some influence from its putative father.
In my own experience, F. whittallii is not the easiest Fritillaria to please but the F. grandiflora blood seems to have added a measure of robustness to F. 'Lentune Waxwing'. Only time will tell!
The seed was sown in 2001 and this photo was taken in 2008.
