I am also very interested in collecting clones of Unguicularis. Those
which I have and the only one I know of for sure is I Lazica, which I
received from Ben Hager of Melrose Gardens. I think he told me he got
his from Jean Witt. I also have a clone which I suspect is I
Cephalonica. This one has clean, tall blue-green foilage. Probably too
tall as the foilage hides the flowers. I know some growers who give it
a hair cut before bloom. Two others I grew from SIGNA seed. One is Alba
(92R302) and narrow leaf from Greece (92304). If you know of any
sources of Unguicularis please let me know.
