    There have been a few posts over the years as to the identity of the maxima cited as 'var superba', and as far as I can recall nothing definitive has ever arisen from it. There are a couple of different maxima that have done the rounds as var superba, and no one can be sure if its the species originally used in the x Tiveyi hybrid. As it was created more than 100 years ago, I doubt it's ever going to be ascertained.
