Ina - I have read that as well and it certainly is abundantly self-fertile,
but have gotten some nice crosses with little effort and tweezers using Z.
primulina as the seed parent and pollen from Z. grandiflora, Z.
macrosiphon, and an unnamed hybrid. I have seen a lot of prolific listed as
apomictic but it would not be likely that they were strictly that way.
