    Default Ascocenda - mystery plant



    Here's a plant I got years ago at a home improvement store's garden shop. The handwritten tag says:

    ASC. PILATTA

    it could be "P/LATTA". Princess Latta? It may not be a "P", it's very curly. I can't find any cross with this name or a reasonable combination in the RHS registry.

    As you can see, I like the color, it's the same color as the fence! The amazing vanishing flowers! Any ideas?
