Hi Paul:
Nice to hear from you, hope you are feeling well. Ellen said that "Polly Spout" is a sterile hybrid between P. pedatisecta and P. tripartita.  Perhaps she will chime in with more info.  I don't know if it availabe where you are, but Lazy SS nursery in the US did have it recently, to the best of my knowledge.  P. pedatisecta was a nuisance in my Connecticut garden so it has been banned from my new garden in North Carolina.

Best regards,
