    Default Enc. (Nursery Rhyme X Cordigera) X Alata

    Another purchase I made at the auction because of scent and the fact that I got it for $6.00. When I got it home and checked tag I found letters missing. The best I can decipher the tag is as follows Enc. (Nursery Rhyme X Cordigera) X Alata. Can anyone verify that?

    Can't help you with the ID Bill, except that it is certainly an Enc. and I can see the cordigera. Beautiful nonetheless.
    Great buy.

    I go alone with Angela, Bill. A real beauty, and fragrance too? How could you go wrong, especially at that price. Great find!

    (Nursery Rhyme x cordigera) = Reese Grazaffi
    (Reese Grazaffi x alata) = unnamed
    These flowers certainly fall within the range of possible outcomes of this hybrid.

    I do not have this hybrid, but I do have both parents, and they are BOTH fragrant! Congratulations on a great purchase, Bill! Betty
