Re: SPEC: versicolor et al

From: "Ian E. & Shirley Efford" <avocet.intl@sympatico.ca>


It would be reasonable to try all the possible crosses between these
species and expect fertile seeds.  I would try them every which way.  It
is unlikely that you would get "pure" versicolor if it is in fact a
species that originated from one, chance, cross in the wild.  It might,
however, been the result of a number of crosses which has given a vary
variable "species complex".  Such crosses may well be going on all the

Ian, in Ottawa where the night-time cold has meant that we have only
reticulata and danfordiae.
