    Nice plants and photos - thanks for sharing them with us.

    The flower you have labeled as Pinguicula gigantea, isn't. Here are some links to this species in flower **link1**, **link2** coloration varies, but the form is most always the same.

    It may possibly be the cultivar, Pinguicula 'John Rizzi'.

    Thanks, SeanH and Joseph!

    Joseph, thanks for correct id Pinguicla. I have it for almost two years. I take two pictures of labeled as Pinguicula gigantea.



    The flower is about 1 1/2 inches length (top to bottom)



    Two plants are in one pot. One plant (front) is about 3 inches. Other plant (back) is about 5 inches and has flower.

    Very nice plants. The ping you have labeled as P. gigantea looks more like my P. 'John Rizzi' or some form of moranensis.

    I looked up the Google to compare the flowers. You are correct. It is not P. gigantea . It looks more like P. 'John Rizzi'. I am waiting for P. moranensis flower bud to open and able to compare with mislabeled Pinguicula.

    Thanks! I appreciate it. I will looking for P. gigantea with correct label. My husband thinks that I am .
