Chris Larson ... "Another Holm hybrid. T. (vernicosa X caulescens) X globosa. This one is very plain until flowering, but then things change. The bracts last in colour for quite a while. Quite a stunner."
Geoff Lawn ... "I emailed Tanja Richter last night about naming and registering this cross by her late father Burkhard Holm (cc. went to Chris). (imported by Peter Tristram)"
