Re:... I. pseudacorus
I assume (incorrectly ?) that the offspring of this yellow seed-
thrower does the same thing? I have ordered ROY DAVIDSON,PSEUDACORUS
BASTARDII and already have HOLDEN'S CHILD. Or should I assume that
since they have at least one other parent (don't know about
the BASTARDII), one should just take ordinary precautions with seed
pods.....I try to be scrupulous with them anyway.
