|C. fremontii Race Dry Creek (n = 6)||Artificial Hybrid||C. oppositifolia (n = 7)|
Twelve individuals of this hybrid combination were produced. Nine hybrids with C. fremontii Race Dry Creek as one parent had a mean pollen stainability of 5%. Three hybrids with C. fremontii Race Elegans as one parent had a mean pollen stainability of 15%. All hybrids exhibited good chromosome pairing and long multiple associations of chromosomes during meiosis. Race Dry Creek is highly variable morphologically and the yellow-flowered form is shown only to illustrate the general habit of the race. The white-flowered form was used to produce the hybrid illustrated here.
