No, you would just end up with a Dreamsicle sibling. The genes would not necessarily match up. You could wind up with something from the tracyii to the Florida Red and everything in between.

I see my error with the seeds.

So, the ‘Dreamsicle’ cultivar mother plant is a single, specific plant picked out of a litter of Florida Red x Tracyi crosses and named ‘Dreamsicle’. Existing, true ‘Dreamsicles’ come from cloning the mother plant *and* from other clones? Do you know who bred the original mother plant?

Exactly. It was registered by a Brian Barnes of Florida, but that is all I can find about him.

Cool. So, to create a cultivar you grow a plant by hook or crook from any seed, name it “name”, create clones from it, and if enough people find it desirable and is sought after then “some authority” declares it a cultivar and changes its name to ‘name’?

Sometimes a new cultivar happens when you see one oddball plant in a pot of normals.
