    A cross between caranculatum and lobbii. Illustrates how sometimes the award and the clonal name can make a huge difference. Austin Creek sells the regular Frank Smith for $18 and the Vera Cruz for $50. A look at the 2 photos shows the difference at:


    I got the plant in trade, doubt if I would have paid $50 for it. It comes from the pot on the right, 2 more spikes coming from a relatively small plant. Sign of good work ethics, once the plant gets huge will probably make a shower of flowers. Definitely one to recommend, in retrospect worth the extra money.
