A knowlegable friend, as a kindness, sent the following corrections and notes to my list of AB's growing here that I posted earlier. You would do well to accept his corrections over information I initially supplied.
In my mind his input represents one of the higher uses of this list.
Name type increase bloom
Aril Skyline ( ) 5x and 2 stalks - AB type OGB+
Butterfly Wings (OB) 4x - this belongs to a TB reg by White. What was distributed was and arilbred of OB- type. From the Comprehensive Checklist:
"Notes: No record of introduction was found for the TB registered by White as "Butterfly Wings" in 1945, this is the one listed in catalogs from the 1950's as a 1946 White introduction; an OB- in both systems."
Charming Image (OGB) 5x - registered as an OGB- type
Desert Diamond (OGB) 4x and 2 stalk - mine's not going to bloom. Looks great, but no bloom stalks
Desert Melody (OGB) 6x and 1 stalk - registered as an OGB- type
Desert Moonlight (OGB) Dead - I'm sorry about that. Really good grower here.
Desert Spirit (OGB-) 6x
Gelee Royale (OGB) Dead - mine wasn't. Turned out to be MARTHA MIA.
Jallah Effendi (OGB) 4x
Onlooker (OGB) 8x and 1 stalk - mine is going to die this year.
Persian Star (OGB+) 8x
Silent Tears (OGB) 7x and 3 stalks - the checklist says it's both OGB and 1/4. Can't have it both ways. I think this is an OGB- type based on pedigree. That means folks wanting to use it as a parent are going down a tough path.
Syrian Princess (AB) 6x and 1 stalk - OGB+ type. Good grower and beautiful
William Mohr (OB) 6x - a 22 chromosome diploid with a history of contributing unreduced gametes among its offspring.
Swertie ( ) 3x - ? Swertii? not an AB at all. A very old diploid plicata collected around 1612 even before you and I were born.
