Re: Hybridizing

HI Chick,
        I tried using plantagenia pollen a few times, but could't get
anything set. Not much else bloomed at that time and I thought I was wasting
the few flowers that I had. I've used 'Fragrant Bouquet' a lot and 'Fragrant
Blue' seedlings for fragrance, and I have yet to get any flowers even as big
as 'Fragrant Bouquet'. I asked Tony Avent about that and he said he made a
lot of crosses with plantagenia pollen and didn't get anything with flowers
near the size of plantagenia.
         Regarding the discussion on variegation, do your experiences fit
with the rules I put in the last post, or have you seen something different?
If we can agree on basic rules, maybe Joe Halinar can give us an idea of
what we're looking at. His background in plant breeding and genetics could
give us all some interesting insights into what we see.
