Becky, no, I just grow them here in Alabama! I do work hard to maintain the various systems that I have though...and just chose to keep the University's number when available as it is simpler and can always be referenced back to their informtion on the line. You are correct , Q0426 actually has many different mutant genes. It has chartreuse colored leaves from the yellow gene. The flower form comes from a combintion of the feathered and duplicate genes.

The Maple Willow is actually a Japanese Morning Glory that has the maple-willow gene. This maple-willow gene causes the leaves to be long and thin like a willow leaf, and causes the flower to be "shedded" or split. There is also a maple gene which causes the leaf to look like the maple leaf, with five elements and the flower is partially split..only from the edge to the tube, not completely through the tube also, like the maple-willow gene.

Great question! It is all very confusing a first, but you are grows on you! - Arlan
