My all time favorite hybrid Cyp flower is xcolumbianum (natural hybrid of montanum and parviflorum pubescens; Mother Nature does a very good job. This particular specimen, in my "show bed" has highly twisted sepals very much like its montanum parent. The flower is about 3 times the size of montanum, like a smallish pubescents.

I am always happy when these bud, I have two of them. I know the flowers will be great every year. Very similar to the tiny jewel flowers of montanum but with somewhat lighter sepals. A real joy to view.

I enjoy just seeing the photo. I don't think I've seen a Cyp. I like
better. The contrasting colors are striking.
