This one is probably taking centre stage at the moment. Especially with all its special individual characteristics and that beautiful coloured heart shaped epichile. Perhaps here nothing is running to form with so many differences cropping up throughout its description which cannot for one minute be compromised! You get 75% matching up with historic descriptive variant notes, yet you have 25% which is no where near the colours or ratios or other formula you would have expected. For me I would love it to be called the "Westmorlandii" variety.
