HYB: Helen Collingwood descendants

Got an offlist request for the list of HELEN COLLINGWOOD descendants I
found in the online database, so am posting them here in case anybody
else is interested.

I'm not sure this is complete - there are some "holes" in the database,
so these older entries may be a work in progress.  The only one of these
I've grown is POST SCRIPT.  Have received two starts of what was
supposed to be TRUDY that don't match the description, but after our
recent discussion of BLACK ANDROMEDA, wonder what TRUDY actually looks
like. :-(

Interesting that several of the registered descendants of the tough
oldies I looked up were from Tompkins.  In spite of his "creative"
documentation of pedigrees, his introductions have had a higher survival
rate for me here than many other hybridizers.  2 of the 7 (supposedly)
from SHANNOPIN, 4 of the 10 from SHAH JEHAN, 2 of the 17 from HC are
his.  But none from INDIAN CHIEF.

Look at BOBBIE LODER, yellow amoena from HC, if pedigree is correct.
