Michael Diev (Moscow) wrote this year in RCIS annual bulletin:
"Some plants I.albertii from near Alma-Ata (Kazakhstan) grow atmy garden since
1991 at raised bed. They bloom not every year. Don't have seeds. Stand falls
freezes -10oC without snow cover."
Last fall I visited Dr.Rodionenko garden in St-Petersburg. I was interested in
I.albertii which one form DR conciders rot resistant, but I.a. plants that
grows for a rather long time became too feeble. However there is a seedling
(Rodionenko #1100) unknown parentage, that DR conciders TB x albertii hybrid.
It is very vigorous, like rot resistant, has big rhisome with hairs like
median. It seems tetraploid because has very large and high leaves.
I planted one rhisome at my garden.
I. imbricata grow at Moscow State University Botanical Garden.
PO box 15, Moscow 119121, Russia
