The seed came from from Beuron, a tetraploid, that was grown from
Colchicine-treated seed. Seed was obtained from SIGNA.
There is one other registered tetraploid pseudacorus, BARANEC, which is
a seedling of Beuron.
I have another suspected tetrraploid pseudacorus here but it is not
confirmed. It was collected by Allan McMurtrie in Turkey. It wouldn't
set seed with other pseudacorus plants.
Even without knowing all this, it's size is a give away. I have grown
several hundred pseudacorus seedlings. This one is a number of degrees
larger in all aspects then any other pseudacorus I have grown. Even
much larger then the other tet I have, which is much larger then all
the others , except this one.
I have a number of reselect pseudacorus seedlings I could post if
anyone was interested. White with purple veins. A very white one,
several with different eyes, several doubles, a number of cream ones,
an interesting tiered one that has a pyramid shape when in bloom with
all blossoms above foliage, some with almost no eyes, and a reblooming
cream one. etc., etc.
