“The crossover has two unique rosette types. The colder time of year rosettePinguicula Florian comprises up to 100 spatulate, non-rapacious winter leaves, each up to 2.5 cm long and up to 0.6 cm wide. These are for the most part green, however, in some cases, the leaves can be green with red features. The mid-year leaves are less various (up to 25), and are spatulate to obovate in structure with the peripheral piece of the leaf having an improved edge. The tinge of the leaves is for the most part green-brown to green-red. The plants bloom generally when in the colder time of year rosette stage and produce up to 5-8 blossoms each year. The two corolla lips structure a point somewhere in the range of 20 and 45 degrees. The two flaps of the upper lip cross-over somewhat and are spatulate to obovate in structure, up to 1.2 cm long and 0.9 cm at the broadest point. The three projections of the lower lip are additionally spatulate to obovate, up to 1.5 cm long and 0.9 cm at the greatest point. The projections are pink, with hazier equal veins that run from the flap base into the throat. The proximal sense of taste surface bears two columns of yellow to light green hairs. The corolla tube is short (0.2 cm), with two lines of yellow hairs at its base. The outside of the cylinder is whitish to light green and furthermore bears equal venation. The (light green) spike can be up to 1.2 cm long and bears brown to rosy venation. Each of the five calyx projections is obovate, light green, and around 0.4 cm long. The lower two calyx flaps are practically corresponding to one another. The blemish is ochre. The blossom tail is up to 16 cm long, and bears some glandular hairs close to the top.”
