|D. laxa||Artificial Hybrid||D. scabra|
Due to unavailability of photos of D. laxa subsp. pseudoplantaginea, subsp. laxa is pictured here. In fact, D. laxa subsp. laxa hybridizes naturally with D. scabra subsp. leiophylla on W Maui and the formal name Dubautia laxa var. blakei Degener & Sherff has been applied to the natural hybrid but no photos of that combination are available. The hybrid depicted here had a pollen stainability of 40% and a maximum chromosome configuration of 10II + 2M4 at meiosis.
