CRYPTANTHUS ‘Spider Web’ Leishman, Brendan circa 2016

Mature, open large rosette to 60cm diameter with an oval-shaped, radial symmetry. About 15 leaves per rosette are narrow lanceolate, each to 50mm wide, chocolate brown and centrally-striped darker brown with tide-like, irregular silver cross-banding which is denser towards the base. The foliage reverse has a whitish grey, dense layer of trichomes. Leaf blades have high undulation and the leaf edges are finely serrated with small dense spines. Initially growth is upright but flattens during blooming with a central cluster of white flowers. Basal offsets are formed or emanate from leaf axils. Reg. Doc. 2/2020 by Dave Weston.
