>>>>>>Thoughts so far is that it is a hybrid but still no answer to why the
leaves are like they are in the first image. (eg. Is it a property of the
parent, then what sort of parent displays this tendancy?). The plants not
big probably 12-18 inches or there abouts with flowers a little higher.

Hi David,
I've had a look at you're pics, I'm almost certain you're plant is a form of
x powellii, and it is quite common for the leaves to be arranged exactly
like those in your image. I grow about six forms of C. x powellii here and
they are all just the same.

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes,
