Looking at Cindy Hensler's website (I have not seen any of the plants)  I
would not say that the phenotypes support hybridity.  One of the problems
with these supposed hybrids is that the blooms either look pure ensata or
pure siberica--a most unusual situation.  Some claims have been made for
intermediacy in the foliage but that seems to be stretching a point.
