Wow!  Ignorance shining through here: has this been done before? What are your expectations?

Beautiful!

It will be doubly nice if it sets fruit, as some of the interspecific Asimina hybrids have proven to be sterile.

reminds me of bat plant kind of..i guess the color and texture of  the flower...

nice find Ed!

even if it doesn't fruit, it's got nice ornamental flowers.

Did fruit develop?!
Or was it sterile?
Very interested in an update:)
