One of those adventurous names that crop up when faced with a hybrid of uncertain parentage. Looks like it owes some filial loyalty to E.davidii,
but by this stage it is all just speculation. A good, vigorous plant.
The name can be traced back to a plant sold by Europa Nursery but there are several "Asiatic hybrids" in circulation and this does not match the "original"clone distributed which seems to be an E. fargesii hybrid.
