Here are two seedlings. The yellow one kept because of eye shape. Also
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
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
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
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
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
was such a nice clump and displayed for a long time. I turned
lot of offers to buy a piece of it. I had a good photo of clump,
0find it on a quick search.
