  • Thread-topic: [IGSrobin] zonal ivy hybrids


I am a member of the pelargonium electronic message group and have seen your request for possible sources of rare peltatum crosses for your research.  These messages seem to have been mediated through the owner-igsrobin@hort.net.  We have recently switched here at the Texas A&M University Dept. of Horticulture to Microsoft Outlook, with mixed results.  Things can look very muddled on the screen, and when I received a message from you through the IGS robin addressed to 'Cynthia" I feel I should say that the Cynthia in question is not me.

Perhaps the person at RegalArt@aol.com is named Cynthia...hope this helps you get your message to the right person.  Good luck in your searches.

I have these ivy zonal crosses
Antoinette (aka Anton) Crozy
Blue Spring
Harlequin Pretty Girl
Madeline Crozy
Schone  is a zonal in my yard.
Swedish Sweetheart
and a few other hybrid ivy pel known to be the result of a zonal x ivy cross called Ice Carnival but I think it is Anchievement.
I also have  some of the dark colored ivies (straight peltatums).   Most of my Red, dark red, vermillon, cherry-red, burgundy are the older varieties  & some with harelquin in them as well and rosebud.

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
Blue Spring
E. H. Trego
Forest Maid
Harlequin Pretty Girl
King of Hearts
Lara Delight
Lara Gem
Little Perky
Madeline Crozy
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.
