    Giles, from the size of your leaves it sounds like your plant is not the small form.

    My plants largest leaves are only 1.5 cms in diameter and with 3 cms long petioles.

    Happy growing.

    Well, from looking at Vic's picture again, his big plant looks like my small form. What I take to be the 'typical' form is much bigger and very robust, with very thick stolons (1cm probably). Can anyone in the UK offer me a piece of the very small form? Dodec - how large is your typical reniformis? I never knew there were 3 sizes of reniformis - are there intermediates, and what is the result of crosses between them?

    there are quite a range of small forms. I have one similar size to yours & Vics, also a very small form from high altitude similar in size to UtricSeb's. Mail me if you want some. What are you doing at Dublin, PhD?

    Hi,

    The leaves of mine are about 5cm in diameter, the petioles are about 7cm long. Here are two pictures :






    Obviously, there seems to be more than just one small form.

    Hey Folks,

    As Vic Brown nicely illustrated in his 13 May posting, and as others have noted, there are a couple of U. reniformis forms in cultivation. I can't steal someone else's thunder and give away details, but expect to see a couple of cultivar descriptions in an issue of CPN within the next several months which names a couple of U. reniformis cultivars. You'll be able to modify your plant's name tags! The "small form" has a particularly inspired cultivar name...

    Cheers

    Well I am all just agog waiting to hear! Hopefully I will aready have the cultivar, whats-its-name and won't have to whine and beg too much, if at all. If it's your own cultivar, congratulations!

    What other utrics are around that should be registered? Probably U. bisquamata 'Betty's Bay', maybe the blue-flowered U. sandersonii. What about the old U. monanthos and U. novae-zealandia that were lumped in with U. dichotoma?

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    How about the various U. livida floating around? Hey, we could call the South African one "Lavender Cyclops" now there is an image for you!

    Since I know a grower that claims to have 9 different clones of U. longifolia, this is a likely candidate as well.
