InfoOf longipes origin.
According to Bill Meyer it's a seedling from Herb's streaked 'Maruba Iwa'.
This streaked plant originating from Herb Benedict's garden represents the second to last of Herb's streaked breeders. Late blooming, of longipes heritage, this streaked 'Maruba Iwa' offspring is rarely offered. Forms a small clump and is fertile.
