This rather unknown species has flowers during winter, today the first flowers. It looks like a grewiflora and grandiflora.
The leaves are yellowish green.
It is a rich flowering species.
I have two different forms, a normal and open flower see pictures:

Thats another attractive flower,Ton. Have you ever crossed this species with anything else?  Does it set seed? Is it tender?
