hybridizer of Swedish Silvia

Would anyone know the hybridizer of Swedish "Silvia."? I would also love to know the parents behind this beauty. Thanks Xena :droolin:

Sorry, Xena, I don't know the answer to either of your questions, but I just got a nice sized start of this plant in the mail the other day. I can't wait to use it as a parent to see what kind of pretty babies it will make!

Disa or Lottis might know because they are Swedish.

No, sorry... I don't know who is hybridizing Silvia... :no:
It is quite common here, but I have no idea where it comes from...

Silvia: a challenge for hybridizers

Postby dale4streps » Tue Feb 26, 2008 11:53 am

Sharon,

Please don't be too disappointed if Silvia isn't a cooperative parent. The stigma isn't "normal". It's sort of feathery. I was never able to make it a mother. Then my plant was "pollen challenged". Often there were waxy numbs instead of anthers with pollen.

Well, the first bloom opened on this plant--I can't see a stigma in the bloom at all. There does seem to be pollen sacs, but they are rather small, and already separated (you know how they're usually stuck together until they dry out). Dale, if you can't succeed with this one, I don't know how much luck I'll have, but I'll keep an eye on it. In the meantime, there are lots more streps at this house to play with! :jump_for_joy:

Just in case that’s still on the agenda:

Silvia has been bred by Bent Mollegaard Nielsen, a hybridizer from Denmark, the owner of the Sosted Garden company.

We are to thank the Dimetris nursery and our friend from Sweden EvaBritta Thorssell, who did their best in investigating and getting this information confirmed.

Unfortunately we will hardly know parents of Silvia.
Mr. Mollegaard Nielsen neither knows them. He said there were seeds from a seed pod he sowed, and there was Silvia.
He had no idea about parents.

For many years ago when Silvia came here to Sweden I look around here in the garden centers,I have a firm number and I call them ,they call the man you talked about Nielsen,he call me back ,he told me same as you early wrote here.He send them to a little bigger firm here in Sweden which send to the bigger plantshop/gardens in hole Sweden.I dont know how popular it been in Denmark but here then have been very popular.
The president of Swedens gesnericeer society was so glad at I found little information about that so she wrote a article in the magazine for many years ago about Silvia and where she came from.//Lottis
ps after Silvia came Victoria and Madelene but they are not so beautifuls as Silvia.
Do every day to the best day of your life.
I wish a fine day.Lottis
