A quote from Kevin Vaughn:

JungleShadows said:Aymon Correvon and Belladonna are nearly sterile. Aymon Correvon is a montanum X wulfenii cross so two diploids with different chromosome counts. It is the plant equivalent of a mule. Belladonna is montanum X somebody but i'm not sure who. I still try each year to cross on to Aymon but so far not seedling one. Greenwich Time is montanum X calcareum and i have exactly ONE seedling. It is a nice one though!
