Argyroxiphium grayanum x Wilkesia hobdyi

 

A. grayanum Artificial Hybrid W. hobdyi

Meiosis in this hybrid indicated that a minimum of 2-3 reciprocal chromosome translocations distinguish the parental genomes. Pollen stainability averaged 20% in two individuals. Note the very conspicuous glandular hairs with droplets of "tar," a condition similar to many of the "tarweeds" of North America.
