Hi, Paul,

I guessed that was what had happened but rather hoped that someone might pop
up and say "That happened to me and I think it is A. ....! To add insult to
injury I asked for A yunnanense this year and yesterday I had 2
germinations- both eophylls are trifoliate! Incidentally my fargesii
seedlings do not appear consistent: only time will tell!

Thanks for interest

Last year I received from the Seed Distribution a quantity of seed of A.
fargesii and achieved an excellent germination. They are now emerging and,
very enexpectedly some are showing 5-foliate leaves. According to the bible
they are trifoliate. Doews anyone have an explanation?


Unfortunately, I don't think the seed is correctly named, as Ellen said.
They have quite chunky trifoliate leaves at maturity.  And definitely not in
the second year.  Depending how broad the leaflets are, maybe something like
amurense perhaps?  I guess you'll have to wait a couple more years to find
out.  It happens from the seedex as mistakes happen.

On the seedex and experiences of this type.... one lot of seed I received as
ringens germinated with 3 distinct leaf types.  There were 2 ringens amongst
them it turned out, but there were too other species in there.  That makes
it much more confusing, let me tell you. <grin>

I hope whatever it turns out to be is a joy, regardless.
