WELCOME TO THE 2020

FEATURING THE HYBRIDIZATION AND INTRODUCTIONS OF RICHARD NORRIS
ATTENTION: ASHWOOD GARDEN WILL BE CLOSED TO VISITORS FOR THE DURATION OF THE SUMMER OF 2020 DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS. We hope that we can see you in the bloom season of 2021 as we enjoy sharing the garden with visitors. STAY SAFE! Observe the guidelines for social contacts. We are all in this together.
The flower on the left was the sensation of the 2019 season. On the right you will see our paragon for red the tet, Ruby Grandeur. We have considered RG to be the best red we have seen. It is a full 5 1/4" but is simply dwarfed by this new flower. The diploid on the left, 19-17, has blown it out of the water. 19-17 is a major step in the direction of creating babies out of the SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE lines that carry the form and size of hibiscus. While the form is not quite there yet, the size is getting close at a full 9", essentially the size of a large dinner plate. For more on this phenomenal seedling see our new page dedicated to it.
Every once in a while one simply gets lucky. 19-17 so far exceeds all the expectations we have for our flowers. It is not an exaggeration to say that this seedling displays every characteristic we desire in our introductions with the sole exception of rebloom.

The image above is a representation of where we are heading in our hybridization, both at the diploid level and the tetraploid level. We are expanding the throats as well as the overall size of the blossoms. The effect of the contrast between the petal colors and the vibrant yellow and green throats provides a striking beauty. This plant is introduced as RED OUT LOUD. We feel this is a premier introduction and feel that many would be very pleased to have this one in their garden.
A further indication of where we are going in our hybridization is illustrated by the seedling in the following images, seedlings 16-15 and 18-13. The first is direct SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE baby that outdoes the paragon IDA MAE NORRIS. The babies are amazing. It will be introduced when we have enough to honor my dear sister Margaret. The second is a new seedling that illustrates the flatness, form, size and expansion of the throats that we are seeing more and more abundantly in the seedling fields.
Starting in 2013 we are maintaining new business hours. For more details please click on the "ABOUT US" link below.
