Hi Chrisan, and Welcome! to ATP.
How exciting to meet some one that has a relative that hybridized semps.

Howard Willis of Fernwood Nursery (UK) has that in his plant list. Here is a link to his website. You can even call him to see if he still has that one available. It is a great semp.
Let me know if you are able to get him from him.

What other semps do you have?

Oops, forgot to give you the link. http://www.fernwood-nursery.co.uk/nursery.htm

Hi Christine! Welcome! It's great to have a fellow Brit here! Which part of the UK are you from? I'm in S. Wales
I've ordered lots from http://www.perhillplants.co.uk/ and always had great service, I've also used http://mendlenursery.co.uk/ who were also good.
