It's one from John Bleck who used to own Abbey Garden Nursery in the US back in the last century. They were grown as part of a project when he was a university lecturer and I think the students had some input with the naming. His best one was 'Fiesta' which I haven't seen for ages.

Ah, thanks. I meant decoingsii. It's that, not haworthiodes, with a similar flower. Old age....
