Most species are just labeled by the species, capensis is given the typical notation because there are many popular forms besides the typical form :)
Now depending on how far south you are, capensis may prefer a windowsill to being grown outdoors, mine outside are all dead but will come back in the fall or winter

Haha, looks like you've figured it out! I think it's the combination of continually high temperatures, strong sunlight, and a lack of nightly temperature drops that gets them
