I absolutely LOVE this flower's form, but it is really a difficult plant to hybridize with! I've tried hybridizing it as both a pod and pollen parent many times and it produces a lot of squishy seeds and the pollen is nearly impossible. I have managed a few seeds with it from sheer persistence, but viability of the seeds remains to be seen.
