Raised by L. E. Jury in New Zealand. A deliberate hybrid between C. saluenensis and C. japonica 'Elegans'.
Elegant like a pop video involving too much golden lycra and beauty - well, the same video. I don't love it, like a dance track I didn't
grow up with (I won't ennumerate them), but I have a grudging admiration for the way it makes the most of what it has.
