xC. 'Antique Gold' is a hybrid produced by Bill Saylor. He crossed Nematanthus 'Cheerio' with Codonanthe gracilis to produce this attractive cultivar. 'Cheerio' is a hybrid of N. gregarius and N. wettsteinii.
The production of intergeneric hybrids between Nematanthus and Codonanthe was one of Mr. Saylor's great achievements, among many.
