Fire and Ice

From my article in the last journal on Patriot, the following may be 
learned. There are three types of white edged, Francee related , 
plants around
1. Francee = diploid ( ie with the normal two chriomosome sets) 
2. Patriot  no1 that is partly tetetraploid ie with 4 chromosome sets
3. Patriot no2 that is fully tetraploid ( = Minuteman probably?)
From these three,  the same type of plants with respect to ploidy can be 
derived for the reversed Patriots like Fire and Ice ( Hansen), 
Loyalist( Falstad) and Paul Revier ( Zilis)
I tested "reversed Patriots" of three different labs ( but none of the 
three named ones) These all turned out to be fully tetraploid so are 
not only similar but identical IMHO
 as can be gleaned form my booklet on hosta sports.
I am wondering how much........
