    If it's a cultivar, you have to propagate it vegetatively, seeds sould just be D.capillaris

    Congrats on naming this fellow, Joseph!!

    Actually, this cultivar does come true from seed (which is how it has been maintained in cultivation since I discovered it), as long as the seed is not produced using pollen from any other variety. But I'm not 100% certain if the trait is recessive, if it is, crosses with other, normal clones, would produce normal appearing plants in the F1 generation and a certain percentage of plants produced by self-pollinating the F1 generation, would appear as the cultivar. This sounds like an excellent experiment for someone to do, like Ivan Snyder, who is often doing just such testing.

    To be registered as a cultivated variety (cultivar), plants do not require any special "merit", they simply need a characteristic(s), that are unique and describable, and they need an advocate who will propagate them and submit them for registration. For instance, many tomato cultivars are unique simply due to their resistance to various pests and diseases.

    Being a registered cultivar, does not confer any special status. Those plants so chosen do not need to meet any subjective criteria (since that would be an entirely different issue), cultivar registration is simply a means to give descriptive "horticultural" names to the plants we grow, so that it is easier to identify them. and to discuss them
