Bruce Dunstan ... "A Barry Genn hybrid T. Trieta X streptophylla." Dale Dixon ... "T. ‘Trietta’. Does anyone know anything about this ?cultivar?" Geoff Lawn ... "There is but one lead trace re T. 'Trietta' on Facebook from over 2 years ago. Neville Ryan ... "T. Trietta is a hybrid made by Norm Kretschmann QLD, it would have been made in the 1960s or 1970s." Pam Butler ... "I have purchased x 2 plants with the name T. Trieta( only 2ts) from Barry Genn. He said they were a hybrid of streptophylla. I am not at home at the moment but I have the cross on my database. I think he said it was a Hybrid done by Norman Kratzman or Rolley Reilly. Barry is the one to ask." Peter Tristram ... "As for Trieta/Trietta. I'm sure it's a tricolor hyb. I used to visit Norm K and Rolley R in the good old days and obtained some great plants from them, but didn't know about Trieta until I started grilling BG about it! Lol! He gave me some hybrids using it." Barry Genn ... "T. Trieta is T. tricolor x T. flabellata and called T. Trieta by the breeder Norm Kratzman. I tried to have this plant registered a few years ago but it did not proceed. I continue to use the T. Trieta name as this plant is very different to any of the other tricolor / flabellata crosses. I have done a cross using T. Trieta x streptophylla which are coming in to flower now."
