Sharon - I look forward to trekking thru all the charting I did last
winter to look where aphylla, pallida, variegata, & reichenbachii show
up in various pedigrees.  It looks like reichenbachii (WHOLE CLOTH) is
an extremely important ancestor in cultivars that thrive in my
garden/climate & I've been wondering how that fitness gets passed
along.  I figure it could either take a careful eye to selection or that
it gets passed along as a dominant trait.  Without looking at my charts,
I can't remember off the top of my head if some were maternal and others
paternal.  But I certainly plan to look!  WHOLE CLOTH was used for so
many crosses, there ought to be a gob of cultivars from reciprocal
crosses to look at.
