Colmanara Wildcat 'Leopard'

Colmanara Wildcat 'Leopard' - Photo by Richard LindbergYesterday I talked about taking individual plant pictures and how that got started. Taking individual flower pictures came first and for a different reason. It was because of Colmanara Wildcat varieties.

I had Colmanara Wildcat 'Bobcat' and Colmanara Wildcat 'Leopard'. They were easy to grow and bloom. Then I got Colmanara Wildcat 'Ocelot' while it was out of bloom and I wanted to know what the flower looked like. There were pictures on the internet and I ended up more confused than ever.

This is true for many hybrids. Sometimes you can find a good picture, often you can't. So I started to take and collect pictures for my own reference.

I included species not because good, definitely identified pictures were not available. has more than 10,000 species, but it is a bit awkward to use to see the picture. And I wanted to use pictures on my website and couldn't use their pictures anyway.
