    Default The Queen comes to Liverpool

    Saw 'the queen' at my local garden centre two weeks ago, this is the result. I thought that the plant looked too crowded in its pot. When I knocked it out there were three separate plants. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think they are all the same variety. As you can see, the leaf colours are different, and the new bud has a purple tint to it. Not that I'm complaining!

    Question

    At last that little bud has opened and, as I thought, it isn't 'the queen'. The nearest I can match it to is 'Los Osos' x 'Candor' but I'm not too sure.
