spontaneous hybrid / ca. 0,4 tall and a bit wider / evergreen / scented / not hardy,
best suited for the greenhouse / rich flowering /
named after the wife Jinty of the late Hugo Latymer
A correct registration of a new Daphne hybrid comprises a description in English
and Latin and also the storage of herbarium material of the parent plants and the
new hybrid at a Botanical Institute.
In case of Daphne rodriguezii as a parent plant, the herbarium material of Mr. Halda
did not show this species (article in the Daphne Society Newsletter Vo. 7, No. 1,
Summer 2005, White & Brickell).
The conclusion is that, in case of Mr. Halda’s Daphne hybrids Daphne x pudica it
is better to use the name Daphne x jintyae and instead of Daphne x lepida it is better
to use the name Daphne x latymeri.
It is sad that the other Daphne rodriguezii hybrids of Mr. Halda, Daphne x seibertii
and Daphne x blanda are naturally also doubtful, especially because no pictures or
hybrid-plants are available.
