crenateE.B. Hoare Notes: A6-1-1; Des Ellery Note Card #20; McM&H 1995: 122; SRL Teamphylloclades have small sharply pointed apical dentations. Obtained from Trevor Poulson by Des & Merriel Ellery (Buena Vista Nursery). This plant was bred from Australian plants and not from US imports. Trevor Poulson was a hobbyist breeder. He used plants that were available in Australia and did not import. His mother sold his collection after his death. It is unknown if this is an actual interspecific hybrid or a cultivar with buckleyi traits.
