    Ah, thanks, I seem to remember that now that you mention it. But I think that's a slightly less fun answer than nonsense syllables.

    If I recall, the leaves are more than just wide - they're so wide that they undulate and give the plant an irregular, frilly appearance. The name might signify a location, but I would argue that it's definitely a form as well, as this plant is very visually distinct.

    That would depend upon where the other D. cuneifolia originates from. There are 2 commonly grown forms of D. cuneifolia- the "undulata" form that comes from the Silvermine Nature Reserve and the more typical form that occurs on Table Mountain and neighbouring areas of the Cape Peninsula. The Silvermine form is the nicest as it generally has larger rosettes and wider leaves.

    Photos of most D. cuneifolia that I've seen in US collections are actually D. admirabilis. Some have considered D. admirabilis to be synonymous with D. cuneifolia in the past but there are enough differences to separate it and it is now considered as distinct by most "experts".

    seedjar, I agree with you on that. It's significantly different from other capensis as to be called at least a form of it, for sure, maybe even a subspecies.

    i'd call it "amazing"

    It looks like D. cuneifolia to me since leaves seem to expand more drastically than my D. admirabilis, but once again, i have a disclaimer in my sig :_
