C. 'Sweet Dreams'is a sibling of C. 'Dreamtime', a cross of the species 'New York' and flavimaculata. Together they illustrate how variable plants from the same cross can be, even when both parents are species. In this case, 'Sweet Dreams' has a purplish cast to the tube, whereas 'Dreamtime' is white.
