Comparison of Byblis ‘Goliath’ (B. filifolia), Byblis ‘David’ (B. liniflora), and their putative fertile hybrid, by Irmgard & Siegfried R.H. Hartmeyer. 5 figures, 4 references, p129-137.
A study of cross pollination events and results. Seed derived plants from the cultivars, Byblis ‘Goliath’ and Byblis ‘David’ were cross pollinated. While the Byblis ‘Goliath’ needs buzz-pollination to release pollen, the hybrid between these two taxa develops self-pollinating flowers, like its robust B. liniflora parent.
