    What a contrast between the drab leaves and the beautiful flower!

    P. "Fraser's Beauty" along with another unregistered cultivar P. "Fraser's Red Leaf" are two clones produced by Fraser Lamont from South Africa (RSA). Being unregistered, their names are often written in different ways, such as P. "Fraser's Beaut" or P. "Fraser Red" or P. moranensis 'Fraser' (I've seen this used for both clones!). http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...icu/loyd26.htm

    Little seems to be known about their parentage, they are often both listed as cultivated forms of P. moranensis. I'm not sure if Fraser Lamont is still active in growing CPs, or for that matter if he is still alive, but his plants live on.

    Presumably, someone knows something more about the man and his plants?

    I've grown P. x 'Frasers Beauty'. I have no idea what the parents are. It's a very vigorous plant that turns a wonderful bright pink under strong light. It's also easy to propagate, and sprouts readily from the leaves.

    Here's a pic I took:

    Thank you for sharing the picture. Looks like it's a typical moranensis complex plant.
