Yes, I'm hoping that the other bearded diploids will contribute some 
variety of colors and forms in the hybrids (with tectorum). Next 
season, I'll probably try using a variegata x suaveolens var. mellita 
hybrid that I have. It has nice yellow standards and falls with 
purple and rusty red stripes on a white/yellow background. It seems 
relatively fertile and vigorous; and maybe the yellow will carry over 
into its offspring with tectorum. Thanks for the interest. Tom
