Bruce Dunstan 10/17 as caerulea x straminea Natural Hybrid
Bruce Dunstan ... "First flowering for me. I'm a sucker for T. straminea and also find T. caerulea to be very easy to grow in my conditions. This one was originally from Lotte via Peter Tristram. I look forward to flowering the other couple of forms of this combination I have in time."
