Good afternoon, pel friends. I am a plant breeder. I worked with Dr. Richard Craig at Penn State, who some of you may know.
I am working with interspecific pels --- within section Ciconium, and specifically zonal x ivy hybrids, or "hybrid ivies" --- and have been having a difficult locating pre-2000 varieties. In particular, I am looking for these varieties:
Antoinette (aka Anton) Crozy
E. H. Trego
Harlequin Pretty Girl
King of Hearts
Queen of Hearts
Schone von Grenchen
and any other hybrid ivy pel known to be the result of a zonal x ivy cross.
I am also interested in dark colored ivies (straight peltatums). Red, dark red, vermillon, cherry-red, burgundy. Most of older varieties seem to have disappeared.
If you know of a pel specialist who still has any of these varieties, please let me know. Thanks.
