    I would suggest it was the lowland form of truncata used as the byrid parent, as the highland parent hasn't been in cultivation long enough to produce botanical hybrids.

    First of all, the tag for the photo reads N.lowiiOp.

    N. truncata highland has not been in circulation that long. I ahve not heard of anyone even flowering one yet. I would like to see this N. truncata highland x maxima cross.
