    Here is an update. Last week I harvested the flower spike from this plant. The spike had produced over 30 flowers and I anticipated a bunch of seed. I could not find a single seed in the entire spike! I have never had a D. capensis that did not produce thousands of seeds, so this plant seems to be "different". I was particularly interested to see if this plant produced seedlings with similar characteristics, but the plant is apparently sterile. My next approach is try to reproduce the plant with leaf cuttings.

    could it be a hybrid? maybe something was pollinated by accident and mislabeled? it clearly has d. capensis in it, whatever it is.

    It could just be a very nice mutant. I really like the edges of the flowers, they have a smewhat rose(Rosa) looking.

    I lean towards it being some sort of hybrid....do you have any aliciae near by? Very possible it's a steril hybrid, or one that can't self and any rate. I think it's a good idea to try to pollinate it with the pollen from another plant....I would also do the reverse.
