I would defy anyone to distinguish it from either parent they look so similar. As Brian says, it has no particular merit apart from one of curiosity!
Well going by your image Diane this would pass for a typical E.obesa as I can only see one flowering point per rib.
Perhaps symmetrica should really be called E.obesa var. multiflora
