...here is a pic taken today...
...this plant totally resembles D'amato's description of D. x Hybrida in the Savage Garden. William, you appear to be right on the money here! I like this plant, it's like a daintier version of Regia. I will try and grow it through the Winter and see what happens. Happy Growing!
I think it would be very cool to be D. xhybrida but I don't know of anyone in Canada growing it and because it isn't self fertile it wouldn't be able to seed into other pots. You would have to have intermedia and filiformis cross and then seed into a pot, and the chances of it being pure filiformis would be 99 to 1 without a controlled cross. I really hope I'm wrong though becuase I really need D. xhybrida.
