BCR ... "Mature, ball-shaped rosette to 15 cm. diameter. Many narrow, stiff, silvery grey, recurved leaves to 20 cm stretched. Erect or leaning compact inflorescence resemblles T. stricta with creamy white petals and faintly greenish floral bracts in semi-shade, though some pink suffusion is evident in plants grown in strong light. Reg. Doc. 10/2019. Country of origin: N.S.W. Australia.
ixioides? x stricta?"
Pam Butler 09/19
Peter Tristram 10/19 as "Ghostly ixioides~hub"
Justin Lee ... "Who did this cross ? I can't find anything about it on BCR or BinA."
Pam Butler ... "I purchased this plant from Peter Tristram last year with no history. Perhaps Peter can fill us in. This morning it has a slight pinkish blush to the flowers."
Peter Tristram ... "Itís a random seedling that bloomed basically all white. I donít know parentage though. Iíll send off a regoform as itís unusual, I think, and see what Geoff thinks."
Pam Butler ... "As the flowers age they have become a lovely pink."
Peter Tristram ... "I will send off a rego form. My plant is quite large, over 30 cm with leaves stretched but it grows as a large ball. Attached are pics of a plant I bloomed a couple of years ago. The stiff leaves made me think of ixioides so labelled the files with ~ixioides back then."
