A large, bold cultivar from Belgium with an unusual olive-green to brown tinge in spring turning lighter through summer. Superb shape and form and with summer watermarks creates a multi-tone effect.

Sent in 9cm pots as growing, established plants.
When we first received this plant it didn't really inspire us - it seemed to have nothing special to set it apart so we didn't increase our stock. However, after a couple of years we grew a few plants just to keep the variety going. With freshly grown plants we then discovered what a good plant it really is - it can't compete with the vivid colours of many varieties but that's not its strength. It has great shape, it's big and bold, it grows well and the brown tones have their own more subtle attraction.
