OK, Lucy....I have a question. I had a "bee" pod form on SDB "Speckled Sprite" (Molly Price , 1963 / '64), I harvested and planted the seeds, and they are starting to sprout. So, if I chose to register one of the seedlings, the "family tree" would read : Speckled Sprite X Unknown....since I have no idea where the bee visited first, correct ? Now, if I "knew" that Speckled Sprite was "selfed", it would read; Speckled Sprite X Speckled Sprite, correct ?
I'm asking because I'm sure one of those seedlings will someday win the Dykes
Another question, in a "species cross", is it still pod first, and pollen second ?.....i.e. I .germanica X I. ensanta, where the pollen from the JI was used on the bearded ( I'm not planning on trying, just curious
