success in obtaining the interspecific hybrids without further pursuit. In this study, we made interspecific crosses between tall-erect J. curcas and dwarf-spreading J. integerrima and obtained several F 1 , F 2 , BC 1 F 1 , and BC 1 F 2 plants. The

‘Myrobalan’ seeds. In this work, we describe a procedure for the in vitro culturing of ‘Myrobalan’ embryos to facilitate plant recovery from interspecific crosses. For this purpose, we performed different experiments with three ‘Myrobalan’ genotypes to

University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez (Dec. 2002). In Florida, Ferwerda (2001) evaluated BGYMV resistance in the interspecific cross G35172 × ICA Pijao. He reported that a recessive gene conferred resistance to leaf chlorosis and presented evidence of

Hydrangea popularity and use in the landscape has expanded rapidly in recent years with the addition of remontant varieties. Relatively little is known about the genetic background or combinability of these plants. We recently established microsatellite markers for hydrangea and evaluated their utility for estimating species diversity and identifying cultivars. We also verified an interspecific cross using these markers. Future research includes marker assisted breeding, particularly with respect to remontant flowering traits.
