Will be very interesting to see the flower.  My only hope is that the hybrid
is not as prolific as P. pedatisecta, whose seeds seem to have a germination
rate of 110% and seem intent upon taking over my garden.  I have had a
Saoromatum survive once over a relatively mild winter here, so perhaps if
this is a true hybrid, it will be a little less invasive.
