Question about Crown Jewel

Posted by christy2828 7 MD (My Page) on

I'm looking to buy a Chimera online, and have found one that I like. It's called Crown Jewels. I've found it for sale at two different places, but one says it is Lyon's and that it is a sport of Golden Rubie, and the other says it is by Cox. They look the same and their name is the same, are they the same?? Thanks :) Christy

Here is the Lyon's:

and here is the Cox:

RE: Question about Crown Jewel

As you can see from the description in FC2 the plant was hybridized by Cox. Lyons greenhouses may just be propagating it to sell.

Crown Jewels (G. Cox) Semidouble-double chimera white star/hot fuchsia stripe, purple fantasy. Medium green, plain. Standard

Oh, okay :) Thanks for clearing that up for me. Christy :)

RE: Question about Crown Jewel

Instead of the Crown Jewel, I got a Misbehaving on Ebay from Kbugs. Can't wait to get it, I think it'll arrive by tomorrow!! Christy :)

Here is a link that might be useful: Misbehaving
