CSJNSW December 1983; Wisleydark green dentate phylloclades average 4.5 cm. in length. Growth habit is spreading and eventually pendant. RHS Wisely supplied this plant to the Australian Botanical Gardens in 1969. Possibly a US cultivar. Edwin B. Hoare referred to it as 'Vermilion Rose'. This is likely the 'South Orange' that features in many of Edwin B. Hoare's cultivars and definitely not the Griffin cultivar.
