That is a lovely old timer, Pearl. I think
Christy would agree with me that it is right up to species level. It has
to be either a collected form or something in about the first generation away
from one of the Asiatic tetraploids.
I was hoping you were going to be showing a photo
of *kochii.* It is one of the 44-chromosome sterile hybrids that got named
a species name, then got booted off that shelf when its hybrid origin became
apparent. I haven't seen it in years and loved it. What you *did*
show was a delight and certainly did not diappoint.
Does anyone have a photo of kochii, by the way, or
know of a source for it?
