Mark this is the resulting flower from the seed you sent me last year. Is this the species or is it Swansdown? From the literature I cant decide and I cant remember what you said.

this is the species because it is almost pure white. What does you book say that makes it confusing?

Bolton, Greater Manc, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

the book says that the species has wrinkled foliage and that swansdown has marbled foliage. Well this one doesnt have as much red in it as swandown but it has the marbled foliage?

Yeo also says that the foliage of the species is wrinkled and tapered, with no marbling. He says only Swansdown has marbling. The plants that I have grown are definatly marbled.
