Great pics - thanks for sharing!

I seem to recall that U. 'Jitka' is not fertile - any idea about the U. alpina × campbelliana cross?

Thanks everyone. :)

In my experience they're both infertile. When I self pollinate/cross pollinate U. alpina × campbelliana, it generates a seedpod that is either empty or it aborts it really soon.
