At long last, here is a picture of one of the progeny of my cross of the plant I am calling "brown sinuata" (mentioned in previous blog posts) and my hybrid, "Imperial Dark". I've not been pushing this dark plant too hard as I don't want to risk losing it before I can cross it with A. odora for hardiness. Since I last discussed my knowledge of the existence of a plant that meets the criteria for a true black A. macrorrhizos (a "black mac"), I have seen pictures of a true Black Mac growing in Australia. Interestingly, it doesn't look a lot like my dark progeny, but is a unique plant in its own right. I am attempting to get some offshoots or pups of this true Black Mac and, if I am successful and if the plant grows well for me, I will post about it here.
