Hi All,

Thanks for the input, Barry.  It got me to checking old catalogs and found
it in Cook?s just as Formatosum in the species section with a description,
but found it in Jerry Stewart?s 1986 catalog under Primary and Secondary
Hybrids as follows:

X formatosum (Hiede) A ?Formosum? x acetosum hybrid.  Double frilly
salmon-pink flower.  Waxy grey-green leaves.  Plant is procumbent.

So, does anyone know who Hiede was? Could it be Anna Heide who was from the
Portland, Oregon, area?

Thanks again.
