|I can tell you one thing on the pseudata's the hard part is the pod parent which is either Gubijin or Chance Beauty with a Japanese is very hard as first Gubijin usually blooms several weeks ahead of the Japanese, what Lee Walker, Chad Harris and Carol Warner says you need to keep the pollen of the japanese over for one year and take it back to when Gubijin is in bloom.
To the best of my knowledge from the reading in winter is that you can not two pseudata's and get another pseudata, nor can you take it to the peudacorous which is so invasive in most parts of the USA.
Hopefully when I get back the Japanese will be bloom and I can save some pollen for next year.
When I return I will be really busy first digging the balance of the Siberian Clump orders, then planting my veggie garden then I have a landscape area in town complete with supplying the plants to do on the 17th....
Then start digging the orders for iris in mid July...
Seems this year has been extra short.
