i have had Podophyllums for approx 15 years and have not really wanted to hybridize them even tho most of the ones i have are hybrids. i have P. delavayi a specie & P. spotty dotty a hybrid & P. kaledoscope a hybrid which all look sorta similar
and i decided to cross them this year even tho this is the first year delavayi did not flower i think because i moved it and it is still recovering. P. delavayi flowers at the y junction of the 2 stems

P. kaleidoscope flowers at the junction of one of the leaves

P. spotty dotty flowers approx 2/3 of the way up one of the stems
Thumb of 2017-07-29/Strever/59769f

i crossed spotty dotty & kaleidoscope and half (approx 5) of the spotty dottys grew an extra stem at the flower junction after pollination making it look like delavayi its mother plant
Thumb of 2017-07-29/Strever/554421

i have never heard of this and searching can not find anything about it
the brits have been hybridizing Podophyllums for more then a decade and i have also ask them if they are familiar with this trait of spotty dotty
has someone here seen this ?

Sorry I have no information for you but the guy up at keeping it green nursery is doing some amazing work with these plants. You might E-mail him see if he will share any info. The open days at the nursery is finished after the end of June so he might have time to respond. Dan Hinkley is another you might try E-mailing, might get a response.
