Dale Dixon ... "Another beautiful cultivar created by Barry Genn of Brisbane.
This cultivar will look absolutely spectacular as it increases in size and more inflorescences are produced. The flowers are a delicate lilac colour, but it is the silver frosted rose coloured floral bracts that are a standout.
My plants are suspended on aluminium craft wire and get full sun exposure in the southwest corner of the TillHouse."
