This hybrid is somewhat of a mystery as the bloom does not resemble the bloom of either parent.  The structure of the plant itself does however resemble both parents in many ways.  Soft green leaves that curl more than a xerographica but holds the signature rosetta shape of xerographica

The plants currently available are on sale because they are slightly misshapen from being in boxes for a prolonged period. There is no leaf damage, they just need some time to stretch their leaves out before they retain the form you see pictured.  All have recently finished blooming
