Bob Hudson 06/18 ... "Here is a little hybrid that was made some time ago by my good mate Richie Sharpe on my plants T. rothii [pollen] x T. exerta [seed].
It has very pale T. rothii colored flowers." Derek Butcher ... "Would you consider it a re-make of T. 'Bobserta' ?" Bob Hudson ... "It is from the same seed batch so it is T. 'Bobserta' although a lot different in the flower spike and conformation and color." Derek Butcher ... "Such are the problems when you hybridise when using just one unstable parent. There are already 3 registered names for this combination. To me they all look to have similar attributes and it seems to be a case of whether you are looking for differences or similarities." Bob Hudson ... "I would have to agree, I will settle on T. 'Bobserta'."
