Natural Hybrids: No inter-generic hybrid involving
Adromischus has ever been reported. However, occasional natural hybrids
between sections can be found, but these are very rare, i.e.
less than one hybrid seen per hundred populations viewed. Such hybrids
are usually distinct and directly intermediate between nearby parents.
They are probably first generation F1 hybrids. In cultivation, they are
vigorous and usually desirable!
Tölken (1985) reports two section 1 x 4 hybrids:
1 x 4
A. filicaulis var. marlothii x A.
1 x 4 A. filicaulis var. marlothii
x A. triflorus.
A. leucophyllus X filicaulis
subsp. marlothii grown in
a hanging basket and photographed by Bryan Makin.
Another of the same cross is also illustrated below.
