    There are so many of them...I'm only familiar with their general appearance. Hope someone comes out of the woodwork and gives you specifics.

    Unfortunately, Denny, there are so many hybrids which are similar in appearance that obtaining a positive ID is really not possible.

    Wow, I have one that looks identical to yours!! Cool!...I didn't have a tag either. Heck, mine was bare root and flowerless, a tag would have been surprising. It had two spikes that are yet to flower, when I bought it a few weeks ago, so we'll see soon if it's identical.

    I think the yellow one looks like a Wilsonara of some sort, not Odontocidium/Odontostele Wildcat.
