Stolen Leaves and Cuttings [15]

The final items in this series are Ethiopian, and thus less perhaps likely to be encountered by readers of this blog.

I have been asked to spread the word about a number of leaves and cuttings that were stolen from a private collection in London a few years ago. Rather than post them all at once, I will aim to do one per day for the next several days, and then do a cumulative list that you can print out and keep handy for future reference. Please circulate the details to colleagues. If you see, or have seen, any of them please contact
