    I was just curious, what is the difference between P. mor. cuadata and cuadata var 'Longwood'? Is it a location name or something more subtle than that?

    I use the name P. moranensis var. caudata to refer to the clone of P. moranensis I bought from Adrian Slack 20 years ago, when he sold them under the old name, P. caudata. I think there is a Longwood Gardens in the US, presumably this is a clone of the same species from there.

    I know (Savage Garden and internet), that various similar clones in the US have letter designations (eg. A and G), but we don't use these in the UK, so I can't make a very good comparison of my plants with them.

    Cheers

    LOL Travis,

    Did you get one from the elderly lady at LACPS? I got one from her misspelled in the same manner. It's Pinguicula moranensis var. caudata 'Longwood', and she says it originally came from the Longwood Gardens. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oops. That typo was my own foolish move but I will pawn it off on the fact that I only got 2 hours of sleep that night.

    Thanks for clearing up the nature of the plant though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
