Peter Tristram ... "This baby is one from Barry, simply labelled rothii but obviously a hybrid. I know Barry knew this batch were hybrids so I wonder if he knows the pollen donor. I imagine, if pot-grown (and in Bruce or Chrisís hands!), it would have a hell of big inflorescence, as it is basically fertiliser-free where it lives, out with the Sharks. The foliage is narrow and quite soft which would eliminate some possibilities, though a purple flowered species for sure."
Barry Genn ..... "Yes these can get quite large. Nevel is responsible for doing this cross and I raised the seed, has registered it as Yongala."
