Crossing Huechera....Suggested Parent Plants

jmcdmdMay 1, 2013

I've never crossed huechera, but I do believe that my "Green Spice" 'had a baby' last year. The plant is about a foot in front of my "GS" and it looks a little bit like "GS" but you can tell it's a little different. It's an aggressive grower and probably not a "keeper". But it's got me to thinking that it might be fun to cross huechera intentionally.

So my real question is this to those of you who have dabbled with hybridizing....What two good "fertile" parent plants would make some interesting crosses?

I didn't even know you could hybridize them......Are they all fertile? Is there a list somewhere of the ones that are?
