I would suggest that you go to a library and get the most recent copy of 
a Horticultural text on Plant Propagation. The variations you are 
interested in are also of interested to commercial nurserymen who make a 
living reproducing these variations. If you can not find anything in the 
library try the Michigan State University book store. I know they will 
have a text since they offer a course in plant propagation (I taught one 
at one point) in the Horticulture department. The text will have 
references and citations as well on this subject.
