Cypella coelestis hybrid?

Hi everyone,

I have been out capturing photos this morning of Cypella coelestis plant
clumps flowering, both grown from seed. The first photo is the typical one
I think, with the first flowers being produced today. The second one has
been flowering for awhile now and was described as a grey/blue variation by
the grower I got the seeds from (here in NZ). It has come true from seed. I
like the muted, moody colour combination of this one just as much as the
original. I’m wondering if this is a natural variation or perhaps the
result of hybridisation? I mention this as the grey/blue one is setting
lots of seed, and it’s next to a Cypella herbertii which is setting seed
like its life depends on it! I would like to share some of the resulting
seed and be confident with the results:)

Wishing you all a very happy New Year!

Kind regards,
Susan Clark (Hibiscus Coast, NZ)
