More Petrocosmeas, it is a pity,that I don't have more frost-free space for
 these plants. Thanks again to a generous forumist which gave me fine
 material of this genus.

    Petrocosmea rosettifolia
    Petrocosmea minor
    Petrocosmea kerrii v. crinita

Three stunning plants ruweiss. I grow Petrocosmea kerrii and it is much larger that the variety you are showing, P.var. crinita, I prefer your compact plant.

Thanks to some very kind friends I have now quite a collection of Petrocosmea cuttings.
But as with any other addiction, one always wants more.
I can offer small leaves of:
P. 'Shortin Bread'
P. rosettifolia
P. forrestii
P. 'Rosemary Platz'
I am interested in both species or hybrids other than: grandiflora, minor, sericea, begoniifolia, aff. iodioides ex aberconwy.
alpines, ferns, bulbs, climbers, shrubs,annuals, tropicals, edibles, vegetables, etc

Hi Razvan Chisu
That was a nice reply, my collection is new and have only just started taking cuttings so in six months will have a good swap shop.
My collection consist of P. begonifolia, P. formosa, P. forrestii, P.grandiflora, P. ioidoides, P. kerrii, P. aff. martinii, P. minor, P. cryptica (was P.rosettifolia) P. sericea, P. cavaleriei.

I love the P. Rosemary Plaz and P. Shortin Bread, I would love to swap cuttings of those two.

We will keep in touch and swap soon.

update......I have Petrocosmea begonifolia. The collection is growing and this was part of my essential collection. I am a happy boy, but a few pounds poorer.
