    schlimii
    besseae
    hirtzii
    klotcheanum
    longifolium
    fischeri

    I like the markings as well. It's a well presented flower.
    I think I'm slowly beginning to like the green flowered
    Phrags.

    I've posted this flower about a half dozen times since 2007. I'm not sure if the tag is legible anymore, but I think it was originally labeled as amazonica 'green giant Xsib'

    Just poking around on the internet and see that Phrag richteri 'green giant' was used by OZ to make a lot of hybrids.

    This plant is a sib cross of Oz's green giant richteri so the taxonomy ID is a good as what they sold to Helen Hirsch 10+ years ago.
