Peter Tristram ... "A couple of spectacular T/Vs flowering at the moment. I canít go past patula (aff??) for this plant (50x50cm, fb 35-45mm). It is the first branched one in the group, the rest being simple so far but with longer floral bracts, though the rosettes all look the same Ė very brown and equal in size."
