    Impressive! – could you give us some history on this project – and on how you are planning to continue?

    Bob,

    The cross yielding the photo above is: {CC4/94 x [N. cyclamineus x (Xana x Candlepower)]}. CC4/94 is the number under which I hold Colin Crotty’s fabulous white N. cyclamineus. I added the CC to denote Colin Crotty in fron of his number. The seedling of mine used is a white miniature trumpet (Xana x Candlepower). The pollen from this was put on N. cyclamineus and gave a few white N. cyclamineus types.

    The above photo is really from a crossing of two Miniature white N. cyclamineus type hybrids. I have continued to intercross and backcross these seedlings. The goal is to try and establish a consistent white N. cyclamineus type seed strain that is stable. Still many yellows, pale yellows and a very few bicolors. There have been some really good whites too.

    Probably at least another two generations away from the stated goal.
