rothii x jalisco-monticola by Neville Ryan, Qld.
Seed sown by Barry Genn. Mature rosette to 60cms. diameter, flowering to about 80cms high. Fasciculata Group.
Peter Tristram ... "This baby is one from Barry, simply labelled rothii but obviously a hybrid. I know Barry knew this batch were hybrids so I wonder if he knows the pollen donor. I imagine, if pot-grown (and in Bruce or Chrisís hands!), it would have a hell of big inflorescence, as it is basically fertiliser-free where it lives, out with the Sharks. The foliage is narrow and quite soft which would eliminate some possibilities, though a purple flowered species for sure."
Barry Genn ..... "Yes these can get quite large. Nevel is responsible for doing this cross and I raised the seed, has registered it as Yongala."
