Dear Paul,

I agree with your opinion, this was also my first thought! I have looked through my recordings, at the time of making this cross there wasn`t a plant of Cypr. flavum in my collection. So it is impossible that this cross is 'Ulla Silkens'.

After trying a lot of pollinations I can tell you that it is very difficult to raise real intermediate hybrids with Cypr. reginae. They show intermediate leaves but flowers like Cypr. reginae, however it is a hybrid! Surprisingly it works best with spotted-leaved species like Cyp. fargesii.

Best wishes
