Anywho, I was pretty certain it was S. oreophila but when it first pichered many folks questioned it. And the background on the plant (The restoration project) made me positive it was pure oreo. Michael said to me when he handed me the plant with the phyllodia on it still, "this is the best characteristic to tell the plant from flava."
Clearly a very confusing plant! Thanks for the ID though! Carl also told me that my plant is the most regal form he's ever encountered. He said it was better looking than the oreo "Don Schnell" cultivar! lol Too bad location or history is not available on it...perhaps once Mike gets situated with his new wife and move I can get more info on it.
