    A lot of the confusion is a result of many of the "spatulata" in cultivation being tokaiensis. Tokaiensis is also probably one of the more easily grown and very, very fecund/weedy members of the spatulata group. So it tends to be very common. Then others are the forms currently in TC that are sold commercially. Also from what I have seen depending on the growing conditions it may appear more like spatulata or more like rotundifolia on others.

    thanks! I've always thought it was spatulata, but i've seen it spelled the other way and was therefor never sure.
