>>>>>WHITE QUEEN is a cross from C. macowanii.  Macowanii pollen actually
sets seeds on 'White Queen.'  Not many germinated, but I have one or two
seedlings from ['White Queen' x macowanii] growing.

Hi Jim,
Looks like White Queen is a polyploid, 2n = 44.

The ref. for this polyploid 'White Queen' comes from KAVB and apparently it
was bred by W. H. Henderson in 1930. White, waxy, with yellowish stripe on
the reverse of the segments.

Best Wishes,
