>>Mike , How many rhizomes on average would you need to have of this or
>>any other before introduction ?  How many years does it take to have
>>sufficient stock ?
>I have been wondering the same thing.  This year I obtained 2000+ seeds
>from my hybridizing efforts.  I'll plant these seeds in November (late
>autumn).  Many will germinate next year.
>The vast majority probably won't bloom until April/May (spring) of 2002 or
>even 2003.
>Supposing there is some gorgeous seedling I want to introduce, how soon
>could I hope to do so?  How much stock do I need?  How much test growing
>(in other gardens) needs to be done?  How many years?
>So from seed to introduction, how many years does it take?  Is 5 years
>reasonable?  4?  maybe 7?
