Aquilegia Express: The Birds and Bees hawk moths too!. Gardeners and horticulturists have known for many years that Aquilegia species can differ dramatically in flower color, size, and shape and have developed many cultivated varieties of columbines through hybridization and back crossing techniques.   Southern European columbines (genus Aquilegia) are involved in active processes of diversification, and the Iberian Peninsula offers a privileged observatory to witness the process. Studies on Iberian columbines have provided significant advances on species diversification, but we still lack a complete perspective of the genetic diversification in the Iberian by: 4. Growing Aquilegia (Columbine) Latin Name Pronunciation: ak-wee-lee'jee-uh. Columbines are very floriferous, compact perennials whose graceful flowers are beloved of hummingbirds. Hardy in zones 3 to 9, Columbines bloom in early to mid-spring in solid colors and bicolors, including pink, red, blue, purple, yellow, and white. Foliage ranges from.   Hybridization in Aquilegia. Following his initial work on floral isolation (Grant, ), Grant sought out systems in nature where floral isolation could be shown to be affective. He chose to study two species of Aquilegia, A. formosa and A. pubescens at the urging of Jens Clausen (Grant, ).Cited by:

Hybridization can lead to the extirpation of species, which may result when interspecific mating directly reduces the number of conspecific offspring and facilitates the incorporation of one. Aquilegia formosa and pubescens are two closely related species belonging to the columbine genus. Despite their morphological and ecological differences, previous studies have revealed a large degree of intercompatibility, as well as little sequence divergence between these two taxa,.We compared the inter- and intraspecific patterns of variation for 9 nuclear loci, and found that Cited by: Flower breeders have created new colors with interspecific hybridization including orange and orange-red.

A few animal species are the result of hybridization. The Lonicera fly is a natural hybrid. The American red wolf appears to be a hybrid of the gray wolf and the coyote, [31] although its taxonomic status has been a subject of controversy. [32] [33] [34] The European edible frog is a semi-permanent hybrid between pool frogs and marsh frogs; its population requires the . Lychnis belongs to Caryophyllaceae and contains a number of horticulturally attractive species. In order to widen their variations in horticultural traits, interspecific cross-pollination and subsequent immature seed culture were carried out using 8 Lychnis species, L. chalcedonica, L. coronata, L. fulgens, L. gracillima, L. kiusiana, L. miqueliana, L. sieboldii, and L. by: 2. Award-winning Aquilegia McKana is a tall Columbine hybrid, which features large, brightly colored, long-spurred, nodding, bi-colored flowers in shades of blue/white, red/yellow and various other color combinations involving pinks and purples. They rise elegantly above a lovely fern-like foliage, which remains handsome throughout summer, provided the soil is kept moist.
