    Goldtrap, just a guess. People usually refer to capensis simply as "cap". I've never heard of capillaris being callled cap, although I'm sure some of you do. Capensis and capillaris are very different looking plants. You shouldn't have a problem distinguishing them.

    Capensis can have rosettes when small.

    I don't believe there is a capillaris 'giant' (or at least I've never heard of it)...so its most likely capensis which does have a giant form.

    Probably it is D. capensis:

    BTW, as a point of education the suffix -ensis whenever it occurs refers to "a location, endemic to" in this case the CAPe in South Africa.
