Re: NE roll call- check/weather/orchid


So, Cathy, did the dictionary give the root of the word? Sounds/looks like something Bill the Cat would've said.

Finally went to my dictionary - it said it is a botanical name for
cultivars derived from the same hybrid. Not sure I get it, but....

OK, the Lumina series of Lychnis is a hybrid of two Lychnis
species, so that
would be a grex?

Yes, and I must confess that I don't know how or if a grex name
differs from a hybrid name.

Grex?  Wow, that's new to me.  So it is a cultivar within a
cultivar, so
to
speak?
sort of like Lychnis Lumina 'Bronze Leaf Red" is the red entry

Lumina

Not exactly; a grex name *is* a hybrid name, and Fuchs' Mandarin
is a
cultivar.
Just like your Lychnis Lumina 'Bronze Leaf Red', provided Lumina
is a
hybrid
within Lychnis, and Bronze Leaf Red is one of Lumina's cultivars.
