That looks great.  From the checklist it's:

"RB (D.E. Benbow, R. 1953). EC, 28" (71cm), E. Blend of saffron gray 
and lavender.  I. stolonifera X TB seedling.  Opington, 1954."

I haven't seen a photo of this before.  The stolonifera shows up 
clearly.  I believe this has been used successfully as a parent.  
That's if my memory isn't playing tricks.  I tried it once but it 
didn't live.  I hope to try again someday.  It's a species cross as 
well as being an AB.
