Peter Tristram 10/12. From the type I gather and sure looks a good match. The basic plant is like a small, thin-leafed rodrigueziana.
Bruce Dunstan 07/17.
Bruce Dunstan ... "First flowering for me. I note in the description they compare it to T. rodrigueziana and T. rettigiana which is now T. calothyrsus." Chris Larson ... "Very nice form. Did it come with provenance?
Not with the usual green bracts - which are very nice in their own way. It also appears much more silver than in the description, and my other plants of this species.
But this plant is a very nice form & well grown. I must track this one down."
