There seems to be no solid conclusions to this. However, plant patents do not
cover sports or seedlings of the plant that is patented. You can hybridize
all you want with a plant that has been patented, the seeds could be grown on
and then be patented by you as long as it is uniquely different from the
plant that is patented. I have a streaked sport of one of Pat Stamilies
daylilies that has a PPAF. This makes it unique in itself and would no longer
be covered by the plant patent.
