B. 'Dorothy's Phantom', an oldie.

This is an old favorite hybridized by Dorothy Patrick a number of years ago, you can see the B. leathermaniae markings on the leaf. The plant shown on the Astrobranch site looks a little different. I would have put this on Gallery, but we don't seem to be usingit very often and I forget about it.

That's quite attractive and unusual! Looks like a close relative of Lucerne or Lucerna, however people want to spell it, both spellings seem to have a huge following.

I don't look at the gallery because it's not like I'll be able to find any particular plant I see. Whatever shows up at the stores are the ones I'm interested in, the ones I can actually get. I don't buy plants in the mail.
