This is the outcome of a cross I did last Spring 2012, with the seed germinating in June 2013, It is a ( Mimas X Mermaid) and the only seedling I have left from this cross, growth has been very slow.

Hi Warren,
hope it is fertile and you can create further offspring with this cross. Did you use the 'Mairmaid' from the old Oberförster or the bracteata hybrid?

cheers
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard, I hope it developes and is fertile, I have used this (Bracteata Hybrid)as a pollinator many a time, but the seedlings end up dying.
