chiapensis x exserta by Neville Ryan, Qld.
Previously here under formula. Registered 11/17
From BCR ... "Mature open, spidery rosette to 40cm. diameter. Scurfed, narrow, silvery-grey, channeled, spreading leaves. Erect, simple, spear-like spike to 20cm. high of shell pink bracts and purple flowers."
Ron Jell ... "This hybrid is apparently in quite a few collections. I like it. The grey and pink seem to go so well together.
My plant came from Neville Ryan and my records show that he in fact did the cross."
Chris Larson ... "I agree, this is a very nice plant. I flowered it a couple of years ago (a little on the small side) and thought it was nice.
This year I flowered it again - and it was very nice. I've been wondering who did it. Nice one Neville - time to give it a name."
Gary May ... "If you're trying to get a rough idea how many are in existence, well, I have one too."
Pam Buttler 11/17 ... "I have 2 of these plants. One is from Neville which is like Ron's but the other came from George Stamatis and is a much bigger plant I think. Neville's is mounted and George's potted but I think they may have been done by different hybridizers."
