Hybridizer Dr. F. G. Brethour

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Brethour (1867-1939), a Toronto dentist, was the author of many articles in Canadian horticultural papers and journals. He is considered the first Canadian to use tetrapoid parents ('Alcazar' X 'Amas') to produce his 'Sir John Eaton'. (CIS-N v22 n1 p17; v23 n1 p25) It still remains uncertain as to whether the four Brethour seedlings awarded certificates of Honourable Mention by the Toronto Horticultural Society in 1922 were ever registered or introduced. (CIS-N v23 n1 p25) (Researched by Don McQueen)

Registrations/Introductions:

Intermediate Bearded: 'Harwood'

Tall Bearded: 'Alice Aileen', 'Grand Opera', 'Malvolio', 'Sir John Eaton', 'Winsome'.
