The hybridiser, Andy Easton, describes this grex as effectively being a miniature and better Cym. tracyanum, as the plants are smaller and the blooms last approximately twice as long as the species whilst maintaining a shape similar to that of tracyanum. All plants originating from the original NHO cross were tetraploid albas.
