Selfcrossing/selfing F1 Hybrid Hibiscus
Hello Everyone, I understand and have experienced that crossing a Rosa Sinesis species with itself produces what appears to be clones of the species.
At the other end of the spectrum, when you cross a modern day hybrid with itself, you can end up with any type of result, bloom or bush.
The conclusion drawn from this is that the more genes in the pool, the wider the range of possible combinations.
Is this true even for an F1 hybrid? ... as I have experienced Archerii and Albo Lacinatus self seeeded as producing what appears to be replicas of themselves and they are both an F1 hybrid.
Is there logic in how this is happening?
