IF you could ever find a Fortuniana seed, it would probably be possible. However, it appears Fortuniana is sterile. There are no listed hybrids of it. I have never been able to find any anthers with pollen in any flower I've ever pulled apart in search of it nor have I ever found self set hips on any plant of it I have played with.
