From Tell’s Gardens catalog, 1962: IMAN ONCO (C. G. White) Early. 12 inches. (Pure Oncocyclus of mixed bloodlines, unknown) I bought this years ago for breeding purposes. Of the 50 some plants received this is the only one that lived and grew without any special care or attention. In fact it grew in spite of lack of care. Undoubtedly may have I. Susiana in its background. Anyone may grow this with ordinary garden culture, I'm sure. It has no pollen (and could have an unusual chromosome count) yet will pod to almost any T. B. pollen and easily with all the fertile new C. G. White hybrids.. Ground color is white with a dotting and netting of steel groy and maroon brown with a maroon-brown signal. Those who love the Oncocyclus and have not been able to grow them will appreciate this lovely flower. One bloom per stem but these last several days even after being pollinated. The name, a natural: "I'm an Onco". $10.00
