    I know it sounds kind of dumb but I was wondering what I would get if 2 cultivars crossed?

    I have both 'Roze' and 'Lucifer' (or at least that's what the tag said but it doesn't look quite right) growing in one of my garden beds. Last year I decided to collect some of the seeds from both varieties. This past spring I managed to germinate some of those seeds - these plants are now about 20cm tall - and I was curious as to what they may turn out to be....either or if pollinated by the same plant or something completely new if cross-pollinated?

    Something new, unless someone has made the cross before! Even then there should be diversity among the individual seedlings.
