    Brian:
    I have seen this coloration in a few seedlings but usually they are whitish green. This looks very nice. is it wild collected?

    Bob,
    Parentage is N. miniatus x N. viridiflorus – but both may be questionable – the first is slightly controversial and the second was not found in the area but I’m pretty confident it was the ‘stray man about town’.

    Brian,
    Where was it found?  When Jerry and I were on a trip rto Spain, Betty Allen was with us.  She stated that N. viridiflorus grew in the pastures near her home in Gibraltar.  She was quite a lady.

    Nancy,
    Harold Koopowitz, two friends from the U.K. and I were at Gibralter 3 weeks ago and, indeed, we saw N. viridiflorus, N. miniatus and the natural hybrid N. x alleniae all in bloom within a few feet of each other.  The second slide shows the tall N. x alleniae with the short N. miniatus in front of it.
