Here is a photo of a small species intercross seedling of
mine. I used a yellow form of I. taurica as the pod parent
and pollen from a hybrid pumila seedling of mine. I. taurica
is classified as a subspecies of I. pumila. Since both are
tetraploid, I figured they would make a good cross. I have tried this
seedling as a pod parent this month, and a pod seems to be forming on it.
It is 3 and 1/2 inches tall and makes a bright little showing in the garden with
its lavender-blue tones and violet fall spot.
