Confused on "hybrids"
I cannot figure out the specific meaning behind hybrid as opposed to seedling or sport? (I do know what a seedling and a sport are, lolz) What had me snooping on hosta progeny on the Hosta Library was Black Hills. I was hoping to use it as a pollen donor but the pollen was visibly weak... and what little pollen I did collect did not take on one single cross. So I looked it up, and turns out it its listed as a GreenGold hybrid, 'Fortunei' sport. I thought hybrids were seedlings from crosses... but those are generally listed with the pod parent x pollen parent? Anyways for being a fortunei, Black Hills reluctantly took pollen from only one other specific hosta cross for 5 pods. Not what I wanted but I was playing busy bee and no pollen is left unturned. But if they do make it I spose I will see how many greenies I can fill the back woodline with, lolz
