Here are two seedlings. The yellow one kept because of eye shape. Also
a slightly different shade of yellow.
Second one kept because of lime colour and shape.
My breeding on these is a bit unorthodox. I select a number of seed
pods based on what mother plant is like and then cull out planting
have a selection of interesting plants. then again collect seeds. Thus
from a group of plants in proximity to each other As I have a wide
pseudacorus this results in increasingly larger
variation in plants. I used to do selective crosses but it didn't seem
to produce anything better then this method. It may almost be time to
go back to selective crosses. I have made sure there is a good mix of
pale seedlings and
quite a number of seedlings now carry genes for white. Some sedlings
also carry genes for
doubles. This is a result of a bee pod collected from Suncascade a
number of years back. All the
seedlings from this pod were singles, but I have been saving pods from
these seedlings of Suncascade
and finally have gotten a few doubles. About 5 double seedlings now.
Hoping for a white or
lime double at some point in time.
The Pyramid seedling got a lot of attention from garden visitors. It
was such a nice clump and displayed for a long time. I turned down a
lot of offers to buy a piece of it. I had a good photo of clump, but
0find it on a quick search.
