Lyonia truncata var. proctorii

From Jennifer Possley, MS, field biologist and Conservation Team leader at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden:

“One of our two Lyonia truncata var. proctorii is about to flower!

These plants were grown from seed collected by CESFO staff in May 2016, and sown by Field Botanist Jimmy Lange, after he carefully researched the best germination methods. Hopefully we will soon have seed from these plants, which we can bank.”
