I'll repeat my usual caveat here: claims of >sterility in the older literature have to be taken with caution. Often the >"sterility" in question is the result of a triploid condition in a >population which is otherwise diploid. Such triploids often give abundant >viable seed when pollinated by tetraploids. Or, of course, they were sterile in those conditions, but taken into other conditions they were no longer sterile. I often here talk of particular things which are sterile in such-and-such a country, but here in Aus (or vice versa) they produce seed. Sometimes a change in environment can beat that sterility, and all it takes is one beating of that sterility to start producing those seedlings that muddy the waters as to the name being a clone or a group. And that is leaving aside the just plain "wrong thing under wrong name" problem that brings named clones uniqueness undone. <grin> Cheers. Paul T.
