The Dactylorhizas are certainly amazing Franz, aren't they? And Maggi, there doesn't seem to be any sign of virus in the leaves of 'Eskimo Nell.'

It's really hard to equate that Ledebouria with L. cooperi as we know it. Who is the LEG?

I think LEG stands for Lesotho-Edinburgh-Gotenburg expedition, but I'm not 100 per cent sure on that.

No Maggi ... it was an expedition organised by an American religious group ... SHAKER LEG!

News from Gerben Tjeersdma about the Ledebouria .... it is correctly identified now as Ledebouria ovatifolia.
 So that problem is solved! Thanks, Gerben  :-*

I believe the leader of this expedition was named Margaret, or Peggie, occasionally shortened even further.

Good to have the correct name for that lovely Ledebouria.

It is indeed.... I hope this is a plant which will be propagated commercially... I think it would be very popular.
