Aculops fuchsiae Resistant Hybridized


            In the 19th century, only a handful of nurserymen-breeders generated a dazzling genetic legacy of fuchsias

            we now enjoy.  I would suggest that the hundreds of amateur fuchsia growers today, working independently,

            could cumulatively accomplish even more by growing seed saved from mite-resistant plants that are pollinated

            randomly among the rich varieties present in their gardens.

HYBRIDS BY DR. PETER BAYE, San Francisco Botanical Garden/Strybing Arboretum: Dr. Baye has been hybridizing fuchsias for the garden and testing for gall mite damage resistance for many years. Some have been deliberate crosses with others done by Mother Nature.  In the PNW, they will be tested for hardiness; most will probably do well. These may not be all of them, nor are they all available outside of California- yet:


(Name- (parentage). Blossom type (Single…). Growth (Upright-Lax-Trailing).  Blossom color- Sepals/Petals.  Comments.)

An AFS member from Redwood City, California., Mary has been hybridizing for gall mite resistance for ~ 5 years.  She anticipates some doubles and trailers and is registering them with AFS beginning in 2006 with these two:


'Jim Lewark'- (Campo Victor x Other Fellow)  S Lax, white/orchid.  Infrequent, self-limiting gall formation.


'Elegant Rose'- (Campo-Victor x Other Fellow)  S Lax, shades of rose, sibling to Jim Lewark. Only occasional crinkling of a few leaves.
