    Don't care if its not Colmanara now.
    Too nice not to post 2 pics of it. Seems to change color intensity in yellow depending on flowering time which seems to be when it feels like it.

    Bold colors! Love it!

    I bought one of these, in bloom, this fall from my local grocery store. It is not as bold in color as yours! Maybe when I bloom it, the color will be bolder.

    Harvey, there are heaps of these that have been cloned & sold. You will/should be able to get a better name to it from the flowers but that is a difficult job as many differ only by a small amount.

    Mine was a labeled plant. So according to my label, it is the same. I also have a Wildcat #13. It is currently in my 1st rebloom of it.

    Beautiful! I have a baby Colmanara, it is growing well, but not sure whether the weather here will induce it to spike!

    Great flowers!!! All the Wildcats are fantastic plants to have in a collection. Some were mentioning about the color. I believe the intensity can vary according to the temperature.

    Very true Wade, temp' does alter colour as does the time it flowers. This is flowering late for me I believe. Flower shape isn't as good but colour better. This plant usually flowers off the other side of the bulb in a month or so, will be interesting to see if it does this time.
