This is a really unique hybrid that almost never came to be! Pam had only one seedling survive, but after many blooming seasons, she now has a healthy inventory of them.  Plant is best grown in a pot like punctulata, has soft semi-lepidote leaves, and the leaves gently recurve and form a slight spiral pattern.  This is absolutely a hybrid worth having
