D. capensis 'Albino' x "typical" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
With new flowers come new crosses! As many of my prior attempts have failed, retrying with this cape version crossed with oblanceolata and spatulata "Gold Coast" so far.

This I may finally be inclined to believe is actually a NZ spatulata; it's smaller and quite distinct from my other spat forms

Your Ahipara Gumfields spatulata looks genuine. I used this one to make my brevifolia x spatulata pictured on this page:

- Ivan Snyder AKA the evil Dr. FrankenSnyder

That's reassuring. Still getting to to grow right (may need to find a different location in the greenhouse, or a bigger pot), but I have D. brevifolia x spatulata 'Tamlin' growing, and it's flowered a couple times.
Got nothing so far on the Coloane Island or Denniston Plateau spatulata seeds so far though...

I really like this pink flowered D. brevifolia. I had one myself years ago, also from Texas. I also have a white flowered plant from North Carolina. Years ago I crossed the two. The hybrid did not make any pollen but made seed when I used pollen from another plant.

I know there are populations that are incompatible with each other, and I hope eventually to try crossing the white form I have (no locality data, just came as brevi) with the pink...but first I need seeds from pinkie for a good seedbank.

I have seed of brevifolia white flower from Hempstead NC for you. There is much more variation in brevifolia ranging in South America. And, I have a hunch burkeana in Africa may actually be brevifolia.

Still hoping I may one day convince this forest to bloom

And D. regia was looking fairly good...

Then ironically for this species, I went and fed them and most of the leaves rotted....hopefully the slow-release osmocote will get them running again, or cooler fall conditions.

The all-green venusta in this pot (that the regular version belongs in) look good. The pot they're supposed to be in, naturally, not so much...

And this guy recently got repotted, hoping for greater size (and some plantlets).

As of right now, all of them. Every one that's come from tubers (zigzagia, aberrans, etc.) have died for whatever reason. Aberrans in particular just doesn't seem to like my conditions, or the soil that it came in and my conditions combined...

Rarely catch them open...still working on the pink Hardin County plants, but the white-flowered ones never stop (this one was even transplanted from another pot and did not give a care)

Slowly concluding basically all of my "hookeri" are actually gunniana
