2.5dentatedescription information provided by Rudi Dorsch and Ruud Tropper from Dolly Kölli's Notes/Journalsphylloclades grown from cuttings are larger, more dentated and similar to ‘Reid’ with S. orssichiana trait of an extra dentations at the apex. This is an unusual hybrid using Dolly’s ‘Reid’ as pollen parent (‘Rudolph’ × S. orssichiana). ‘Rudolph’ is [‘Maria’ (T) × ‘Christmas Charm’ (TB)]. Combining S. kautskyi into the cross brings together genetics from four possible species. It was the first cross with S. kautskyi ever.
