Re: Re: Re: HYB Goals

Something I have thought of for years, but have not started working on, is TB with the pumila spot.
I have read that some crosses of SDBs give seedlings that are too tall to be listed as SDBs.   Some are listed as BB or IB, but most are disarded.  Well, most seedlings are discarded anyway, of course.
But supose one crossed the tallest I. pumila and the tallest TBs.  Might some such seedlings be tall enough to reach the TB class?
So why didn't I jump in when I first thought of this? One would have a long time getting branching, bud count, and other traits expected in TBs.  And the only advantage to them would be the pumila spot.
But if someone was young and foolish, this would be an interesting goal.
Earlier, I didn't mention that I fiddle around with beardless intersectional hybrids.  No goal beyond looking and thinking about the potential.
