    Well, the registered flower is now Myrmecatavola Frances Fox (with an e) (Polka Dot x tibicinis). Only three hybrids have been made and registered with Keowee, none with a Schomburgkia. Both Polka Dot and Keowee are F1 B. nodosa hybrids. The makeup of both flowers shown above is similar enough that, without any additional information, both are in the realm of possible results for both hybrids. There are no AOS awards to date for Frances Fox. Both are striking flowers.

    Thank you Michael For this info. The prizes I received were not AOS awards, just show awards.
    I found the flowers so similar that I just wanted to hear from someone who knew more about "crosses" and Hybrids.
    I knew that mine was registered. I have made note that it is now Myrmecatavola.
    Thanks again for the Info.

    Thanks for the info, Michael. The trouble with some Thai breeders is that they sometimes do not care to register their crosses or even incorrectly tag their plants.
