SRL Registrationphylloclades exhibit 3 axils along each margin. This cultivar appears to lack a burgundy margin trait (based on the pictures). This might be present under different growing conditions. Each side axil holds a rudimentary bristle that disappears on older phylloclades. Each apex has numerous short, fine bristles. Commercially distributed by Whittons Greenhouses as Phillip. Randy Whitton stated it originated from Japan.Whittons Greenhouses
