A hybrid is created when two species of the same genus are pollinated and the resulting offspring show traits from both parents.  Plant breeders intentionally cross-pollinate two different varieties of a plant, aiming to produce an offspring, or hybrid, that contains the best traits of each of the parent. The hybrids we sell are selectively bred for size, color, and ease of growing! You never know exactly what traits will come out in the offspring, and this gives one a chance to own something spectacular and unique for your collection.
