I actually got these yesterday, but didn't have time to post it until today.
Thank you Sanguinearocks101 for your donation of 11 packs of D. Filiformis "Florida Red".
He took the time in between yelling at every passing car, "Hey! I'm walkin' here!", to harvest and donate these. What a nice young man.
I believe these are a tropical form that does not require stratification or dormancy, but I admit I don't know for sure, so I'm not promising anything. Maybe someone with greater knowledge of them can confirm or deny this.
These seeds are only available for donors for the next 48 hours, and for everyone on Monday.
Thank you Sanguinearocks101, you're a pretty OK guy.

I grew Florida Reds for a couple years. I don't recall the seeds needing stratification (my god, they popped up everywhere!). And the plants are sub-tropical verging on tropical. My Florida Reds bloomed from May through October, while my D. filiformis var. filiformis bloomed only in June. And when it got cold in the fall, the Florida Reds refused to pack it in for the winter. In mid-October, I gave the big tray of them to my friend with a commercial greenhouse. The seedlings that had sprouted in my other pots were killed by the cold.

I got one fringe benefit from this. Mother Nature did a bit of cross-pollination, and I have some hybrids of the regular variety and the red variety. They inherited the red color of their Florida parent and the cold-hardiness of their New Jersey parent.

Very interesting. I can say that Florida Red lives up to its name. Living in Florida, I keep mine outside. Mine also has been flowering nonstop since I received it. I planted some seeds in a pot and sent the leftovers to the seed bank as well. If you want more from my next series of flowers I can send more. No shortage of Florida Red though :lol: It was a weed for my friend too but after I got the plant and cleaned the extra hitchhikers out, it left a very nice looking plant. I can see it not having much cold hardiness being native here. The absolute lowest temps I get in my zone are like 35 degrees.
