Subject: Intergradient Cephalotus leaves 

I have read in "The Carnivorous Plants" by Francis Ernist Lloyd, the
leaves of Cephalotus to be refered to as intergradient, is this the word
you were looking for? I hope so, I know what it is like to have a word
on the tip of your tongue, but not be able to confirm it's origin.
Take Care,
Steven Stewart
