Peter Tristram 06/17 ... "Andrew Flower: Your Luscious Lissa is a very nice hybrid! Its reverse is here done by Barry - T. Cabaret, albeit with different clones. I do notice that RFI's gardneri are different to what's been in Aussie collections forever. The US form is more globose and the branches more pronounced. Both forms self set much seed. Your gardneri might be like this being from Pam and Luscious Lissa looks more open than Cabaret.
I took this photo of a nice clone of Barry’s T. Cabaret a week or so ago just as the first flowers were emerging. There are still some flowers to go so I’ll see what mischief I can create."
