Osbourne Green

Osbourne Green is a border variety that is said to be over 200 years old. It’s a very hardy border that is easy to grow in most situations, ideal for growing in the border or in pots.
Four Osbourne Green plants in one of my Auricula borders, picture taken on 6 March 2012. Minus 7°C, they are frozen just now but will soon be in full growth in the spring.

The two plants below are crosses that I have made using Osbourne Green as the mother plant, transferring pollen from other plants stamens to Osbourne Greens stigma.
