Nellie (August) Nellie (March) Nellie (May) Nellie Very dark, almost black. £3.50 A very dark variety, almost black in the colder months. Forms perfect, large rosettes and grows easily enough but is a bit mean with its offsets - so it is seldom offered for sale but is otherwise an excellent plant that is so worth having. It's big, but not 'Nellie the Elephant' big!! Andrê Smits (B) 1996 Sent in 9cm pots as growing, established plants.
