D. Watsonii x D.uniflora.
Raised by O. Augustyn and registered in 1983.

Another example of the strange philosophy that if D.uniflora is good, then more of it must be better. I like the plant, it has good colour and large flowers (all of which it gets from D.uniflora). The little bit of D.tripetaloides that remains is effectively invisible.

The plant above is my original clone. Since then a friend has re-synthesised the grex and given me a number of seedlings. It is clear that they are more variabnle than I had allowed for originally. I have retained a number of clones and will slowly reduce their number when I am confident which are the best.
