But i agree with ssbphal - It's not Everspring King and is something else - King. Probably 3n and sterile. You might be able to get it to work as a pollen parent but you won't get a lot of viable seed and the kids would have a few mutation problems.
I haven't heard this before, the only real problem with sterility from Phals that comes to mind (apart from species differentiation) is from uneven ploidy.They are often treated with chemicals to make them blooom/have more spikes that can cause problems with reproduction down the line.
