'Black Dragon' (Strain)
T-41 'Black Dragon Strain'. DeGraaff 1950. Registured as “containing L. leucanthum var. centifolium and others unknown”. Eddie McRae reported that this magnificent group started from seed collected in “cottage gardens” in China and was originally named 'Black Magic' which was later introduced in 1958. The Clone M-12 was selected for use as the seed parent of the strain. Select individuals of each years seed stock were used a pollinators back onto “mom” for the next years seed crop. This strain is now extinct as 'M-12' is now gone.
