I was able to obtain a germinated seed of one of the crosses done in the past from a flabellifer mother plant. The seed is noticably smaller than either of the two species, but with only 3 strap leaves, there is not much of a noticable difference in the plant right now. I intend on planting this out in the yard the summer after next, and I guess I will find out what mine looks like.
