Antwort auf: Hybrid names von Darcy Gunnlaugson am 08 Februar, 2000 um 22:48:27:

A hybrid is always a hybrid...

If two species have been crossed, and been registered with a greex name, then that name applies to ALL later plants with that cross. For example Aki is the cross macranthos x pubescens. And all later crosses with the species macranthos (ANY form) crossed with pubescens (any form), is Aki. However - and this is important - if one turns the hybrid around, and make a pubescens x macranthos cross, then it is NOT Aki. To be the same hybrid, the pollen donor and seed pot plant has to be the same. So if pubescens have the seeds, then it's one hybrid, and is macrantjos has thjem, then it's another one.

One example is Epipactis Renate (palustris x gigantea) and Epipactis Sabine (gigantea x palustris).

Remakes of natural hybrid also get it's own greex name, and should not be called it's natural hybrids name.

The problems come when names shange in the family. Then one hybrid can have two names. I beleave that the first registered of the two, then is the name one whould use. Don't know the policy here, however.

: I am much inclined to agree with Peter on this topic of naming hybrids, and would think that a registered name can only apply to that particular matured clone with the characteristics it alone displays. It surely cannot be thought that a named hybrid cross lays claim to all progeny which may result from this cross. The genetic diversity is too great.
