T. Queen Fabiola as I have it is tolerant of summer moisture as is T
peduncularis but peduncularis requires perfect drainage for wet summers
here. T laxa, T peduncularis, and T hyacintha all tolerate a summer drought
in the green house for me. T Queen Fabiola seeds in the open sand plunge
and has always been variable in colour, so I suggest that the cultivar name
is no longer of any value, as commercial stocks are probably equally varied.
My observations are based on a limited number of accessions but from a
variable climate conditions.
