Re: HYB: JI X SIB hybrids


From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

At the JI section meeting in Oklahoma City, Terry Aitken showed some slides
of comparable branching on JIs.

My impression is that JI branching is partly genetic, partly current
conditions--more water, rich soil, and you can get some pretty fantastic
branching on cultivars that have the genetic potential.

Currier McEwen also shows in his book a color picture of a highly branched
JI seedling that is not only in bloom but has a stalk with mature seed
pods--a heavily branched repeat bloomer!  And the flower was nothing to
sneeze at, either.

SO--this still doesn't prove that these seedlings are really JI x SIB crosses.
