A hybrid produced by crossing plants of two different genera.
- In assembling and propagating such bigeners they would ensure their survival, not just as genetical freaks but in many cases as vigorous novelties of no small horticultural potential.
- In these bigeners the result generally resembled the female parent almost entirely.
- Mr. Wilks exhibited a plant named Chionoscilla, which was considered to be undoubtedly a bigener between Chionodoxa and Scilla bifolia.
