Mussaenda breeding in the Philippines

Mussaenda breeding in the Philippines

The breeding of horticultural crops Proceedings of an international symposium held at National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan, December, 1986: 190-199

Breeding work on this ornamental shrub began in the Philippines in 1948 using the mutant M. philippica var. aurorae (first discovered in 1915), which exhibits 5 fully expanded white sepals. Crosses of the male mutant with M. philippica and M. erythrophylla gave rise to hybrids which differed in colour and distribution of the expanded calyx lobes. The ancestry of 15 cultivars is indicated; data on the floral and fruiting characteristics of 21 cultivars are tabulated.
