    Hi John. We are more than happy to stand corrected. The general description on the plant record broadly matches yours, but there was an error in the leaf colour in the feature panel, which we have now corrected. We have also added a bit more info from your description. Do you have a photo of the plant we could use on the plant record?

    Thanks for pointing this out.
