ionantha x schiedeana, Pamela Koide Hyatt ~2011
From BCR ... A cultivar (vegetative sport) of T. x rectifolia, which is a natural hybrid of T. ionantha and schiedeana. T. x rectifolia occurs frequently where these species populations overlap throughout central Mexico. This sport appeared in cultivation at Bird Rock Tropicals nursery. Mature plants are 18-20 cm tall and rosette is 10-12 cm wide. The normal green foliage has marked horizontal white cross-banding on all leaves. The inflorescence is simple and true for T. x rectifolia, with the center leaves producing a red blush and the typical cream to white flowers, which are violet at the base. Reg. Doc. 1/2015. Country of origin: California USA

Dale Dixon 12/19 as x rectifolia with Zebra stripes.
Dale Dixon ... "Not registered I know, but a form of x rectifolia I got from Peter Tristram. You can see the ‘Zebra Stripe’ on some of the leaves."
Geoff Lawn ... "This almost certainly has to be the registered T. 'Green Zebra'."
