A vigorous hybrid with dark freckled leaves bred by crossing E. 'Leia' and E. vandermerwei. Raised by Janet Egger in Oregon and distributed by Terra Nova Nurseries.

Low growing, I have been a little concerned about its hardiness because E. vandermerwei has been badly damaged in the greenhouse in cold winters. 'Freckles' would prefer wetter summers than it receives under cover and if it grew more vigorously it might be tougher through the winter.
