Isobyl La Croix has recently clarified the origin of this plant (The Plantsman, vol 10 part 3, Sept 2011). It was grown by Tom Norman from seed
collected in Madagascar but it has been suggested that it might be a semi-naturalised hybrid from cultivation. It appears
to have G.dalenii in its ancestry.
