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.
