Victor Reiter

Parentage : xTaciveria ‘Ruth Bancroft’ x ? Tacitus bellus

Either created by Victor Reiter or found by Victor Reiter as a chance seedling in his collection and named for him.

xT. ‘Victor Reiter’ is very similar to xT. ‘Ruth Bancroft’, the rosette is somewhat smaller and more reddish and the plant is more difficult to grow.

Interestingly, both hybrids, xT. ‘Ruth Bancroft’ and xT. ‘Victor Reiter’ are flowering in summer, 2 – 3 months later than Tacitus bellus !
