Parentage uncertain, whether hybrid of or arvensis. See References. Older botanical references describe Andersoni as long ago as 1840, often as a "variety" or hybrid of R. arvensis. If anyone who knows whether these are all one naturally occurring hybrid or different hybrids, please post a comment here.
Plants in cultivation in W. Germany under this name are nearly always R. collina 'Andersonii' according to Krüssmann.
