    George sent me a mass of pictures recently of more of his hybrids for everyone to enjoy. 20161215_074437.jpg 20161215_074409.jpg 20161215_074345.jpg 20161215_074315.jpg

    WOW… I’m completely overwhelmed by these new introductions. I thoroughly enjoyed all of these photos and can only imagine Mr. Zammas’ mixed feelings and joy in finally getting these out so that the membership could also appreciate them. Likewise, credit to Tim (KWTIMO) for his photographic support, he must have felt honored.

    Although they are all just beautiful I was especially impressed by “Fantasy” and “Medusa”… applause, applause, applause! :)

    Beautiful, George! I especially like the nice, broad oakleaf on the first one. Thanks, Tim for posting.

    Wowza! Those are gorgeous! Love the polka dots- especially the small polka dots all over! Thanks George and Tim. Looking forward to some of these being dispersed someday.

    When it comes to hybridizing, you certainly have the touch George. Thanks Tim for posting these beauties!

    I will take one of each. ;)

    I hope some of these start to appear at upcoming auctions because they are spectacular.

    Tim, you've been wise to share just a few of George's hybrids with us at a time. It would be overwhelming if we saw them all at once!

    This is an unnamed one George gave me some time ago. It has been looking really good for the last month. 20170126_141348.jpg 20170126_141337.jpg 20170126_141322.jpg 20170126_141314.jpg 20170126_141302.jpg

    A few more amazing George Zammas hybrids to show! The first is Fantasy Fest- a hybrid that everyone was oohing and aaahing over in his garden last spring. I feel fortunate to have a small one getting established in my garden. The others are new and I don't know if they have names. Take a look.

    They're sooo beautiful. George really has the touch in making good hybrids and with you growing them, they'll soon be spectacular!

    Marie, I only have the Fantasy Fest and a couple of others obtained at auction. They are just getting established and winter is not the best time for them here. I hope they grow like his. I only wish I had the other ones! He really does make amazing hybrids. I try, but somehow they end up eventually dying, except a very few. I keep on trying though.

    I could not find the one I was looking for so I just posted this seedling image.jpg I used the naming tag for size reference.

    Wow. I don't think I have seen a single George Zammas hybrid/seedling that I would not jump at to add to my garden.
