    The petioles are that thin on a lot of typical spats. No pic I've ever seen of cistiflora shows the rosettes with spatulate leaves either, always strap-shaped. That includes the specimens I have. I still think there may have been an accidental mix-up.

    These look a little more spatulate than most.

    D. cistiflora is very polymorphic. I've seen some with very broad leaves, and some that are needle thin. This is also the red flowered form, which not many people have, so it may be a little different.

    Still can't find any images of cistiflora with leaves like that ( spatulate, yes, but spoon shaped, no), and I can't get your link to work.
    I'll stay skeptical until they produce stems.

    I sent the image to Damon to see what he can make of it.

    An amazing spring crop. The D. cistiflora look very good. Are these grown out of doors? I just read where Stewart McPherson commented on the large variability of this species.

    Damon just confirmed that the cistifloras are actually spatulatas. Getting replacement seeds sent.
