I think Toby will be introducing it this spring. It truly is as Kevin said, a chameleon of s semp.

I'm a big fan of the blue, purple, pink semps with water marks.

I am hoping to record all the changes this one goes through year round. We have a good start on it.
I see signs that is is starting into another change.

Yes, it was named for Toby's little daughter. Maybe we will get see her at the clinic?

This is one of my favorites of Kevin's new introductions... such intense, ever changing coloring. Kevin sent me this new variety about the time that my daughter was born. We weren't sure we were going to keep it because the coloring did change so drastically throughout the year... it was just A2-1 for the longest time. Having received the plant when my first daughter, Gwen, was born though it reminded me a lot of her... intense, beautiful, always changing.

@youngsgarden Toby, I love hearing about how a plant is named, and what a beautiful child to have named this semp after.
I hope we get to meet your family at the clinic in April. What a very special treat that would be.
