Okay, here's a good spot.
>> It's all the wayout in the middle.
>> All the way out in the middle.
It's way out there.
>> [LAUGH] Did you bring anyof your extra rubber boots? You know what, forget it.
>> We don't have any water moccasins in thispart of the country.
>> I don't care.
Let's go for it.
Can you imagine living with water moccasins? I would freak out.
>> I can.
>> I don't mind snakes at all butwater moccasin? >> We don't worry about that.
>> Wow, this thing is a beauty.
>> Yeah, this is the deepest red ofany tropical lily that I know of.
>> It's stunning.
I would say that's a red,as compared to the last one we shot.
>> And they call it the red flarebecause it flares out so far.
>> It is.
>> This is->> I'm gonna take a picture, keep talking.
Tell me some more stuff.
>> This plant goes way back.
It's probably in the 1930s.
>> Really? >> And the reason that you don't seeit is because it's temperamental.
We're trying to->> To temperature, or to? >> To temperature.
It likes a lot of heat.
It doesn't winter over very easily.
>> It's got a good fragrance.
>> But it's such a gorgeous lily.
>> Oh, my gosh.
>> We had to have it,and we have to grow it.
We will be offering it for sale, butwe'll be offering it as a specimen plant because if we'regonna take all that trouble to get it up to a gallon size, we'regonna get it up to a bigger size.
>> Right from the get go, it's already gonna beone of the 16 by sevens? >> Yeah, it's gonna be a specimen.
>> What would this plant sell for? The other one was around 50 bucks.
>> Yeah, in the gallon and in aspecimen pot, specimen sized plant, it would probably be $120.
I think this one's a littlemore red in the leaf but it's mottled a little bit different,too.
>> It is definitely more red.
>> And the Maroon,was it Maroon Beauty that we did? >> Yeah, Maroon Beauty.
>> It was kinda greenin the middle and then that stuff was coming out butthis one's got different.
>> Still has the strong venationon the back and the serration but it's a deeper red.
Not only a deeper red flower,a deeper red leaf, just as I was saying,it tends to be that way.
>> Is this a hybrid? >> It is a hybrid.
>> Okay, but 30s, I'm thinking,are they hybreeding? >> 1938, this was done byMartin Randig and it came off of.
>> I never heard Martin's name.
I've gotta remember this name,right? I mean, 1930s.
>> Yeah, 1938.
>> He's one of the grandfathers? >> Yeah,one of the premier hybridisers.
He came before Kurt Strom andPerry Slocum.
And so this is the deepest red.
It's the best red,as far as I'm concerned, but it is a little temperamental as faras the heat that it requires and overwintering, and so you don'treally see it on the market.
>> Is it becauseit's not doing well? I don't wanna keep people fromgetting this plant cuz I'm amazed by it right now.
I want people to get it buthow can someone put this in, say, even in Southern California,where I'm at? How we can put it out there andmake it do well? >> It does great in the summer,it may not over winter as well.
So, just buy it as a specimen.
I'm sure you're not the only personin America that does this plant, so if they're buying this from someoneelse, it's a one gallon pot.
They've gotta get it up immediately,right? >> Yes, I would.
>> Okay,wow this is really fantastic.
>> The bigger you get it,the better it's gonna do.
>> So right now, this is about,I don't know, a four foot diameter.
How many plants are here? >> Do you what me to pick it up? >> Yeah.
Is it in a bigger pot already? >> No,this is still in a one gallon.
Actually, this isa separate plant next to it but that's what size it is.
>> It's a great plant.
>> And you can see,it's got a new bloom coming, and it's got a bud after that.
>> So even in a gallon pot,what we call a lily gallon, it's pretty good sized.
You can see the spread.
>> If you're only going tohave this as an annual, and I would treat this as an annual, alot of my clients are buying plants and would treat it as an annual.
People would spend a couple hundredbucks on just pretty flowers for summer in front of their place.
So I try and tell that to peoplewhen they're doing that for water lilies.
Treat it as an annual, get itin a big pot, fertilize it and just be amazed byit all summer long.
>> And in southern California,there's a good chance this would winter over,once you got it to a big size.
If you're starting out withjust a tuber in the spring, that would be more difficult forthe average customer.
>> What's the name I'm notsupposed to forget, Martin who? >> Randig.
Love that guy.
I'm gonna look him up when I get home.
Take me to another red.
Do you have another one? >> We do have another one.
>> What's this one called? >> It's called Red Cup, and it'sactually a seedling of Red Flare.
Lead me to it.
It is in another greenhouse.
>> All right, let's go.
Do we have to walk out inthe middle of this one too? >> We don't have towalk out in the middle.
>> [LAUGH]>> [LAUGH] >> I should've worn shorts.
What was I thinking? Let's hurry up,cuz I know they're closing.
>> They are.
