    S. x wrigleyana, most likely. Psittacina x leucophylla.

    Another TF'er and I recently got into a discussion about a plant identical to that one.

    We are not sure that's a wrigglyana, a S. psitt. x leuc. hybrid. I'm pretty sure it's actually a formosa, a psitt. x minor cross.

    Note how the wriggles have more red, and how the hood tends to open up after a while. The formosas are greener, and almost always keep the hoods somewhat sealed.

    Well, whatever. It's still a very handsome plant. They tend to be very, very vigorous, and multiply regularly. Be prepared to divide those guys very soon!

    Joe, it seems like that would be pretty close....there is obviously more psittacina than any of the others in there now....the hood isnt even opening up like you would see in either wrig or formosa....so either psitt x wrig or psitt x formosa.....best just leave it as a psittacina hybrid.

    This is probably the best option.

    Yup.
