Trond, maybe you should take a paintbrush and help hybridization along?  If you get seed of camtschatensis or hybrids this year I'd love some seed.  And I even have a seed import permit so I can do it legally this time.

That's an idea! I'll try it if I remember at the right time!

The yellow ones (americanus) are out now! They always are earlier than the white ones (camtschatcencis).

These are all cool, I'd like to try some here- real species; Are the seeds short-lived?

I have never tried to store the seeds. When fresh sown (selfsown that is) they germinate 200%! Last year I had collected some seed Cohan, but I forgot to mail them :-\

200%! Very impressive! ;) Are you sure they were all seedlings? maybe some were slugs in disguise  ;D

Who knows? The very first two plants I had were both devoured by slugs but now when I have thousands of seedlings they do not taste any :-\ I suppose they are not rare enough.
