  • color/doubling genetics
    Here you find a text , rather a report , of an experiment on color breeding that I started several years ago .
    The test goes on and the description of the results , mostly by assumption , are mixed up with information coming from other breeder .
    TO DO : add information on new developments

  • pictures

    Update 03/08 : for the moment I'm not interested in breeding for " strains " or "lines " . My concern is to get more information on the genetic content of my hellebores .
    Selfing , inbreeding and selection are the key words
    Pictures of interesting results are added in " family galleries "

    • General information and other crosses .
    • Starting from one plant of color Rose , you can get a surprisingly
      number of other colors .After six years the F2 seedlings still bring a lot of variation

    • Starting from one plant of color Dark , in this case a Blue Lady
      (Schmieman) a number of other color tones are coming up and
      surprisingly with a segregation for the leaves in the F1 generation

    • Starting from one plant of color Yellow , in this case a YVP
      to see the segregation for this color .
      Also a test cross with the Blue Lady , one ugly seedling got the name Heldevil .
