    I just went to the nursery website just to see if by chance they listed what they grew...and to my luck they did! I found Tahoma Glacier as well!! Thank you for your quick response!

    Wow that looks very similar to mine, but also a bit different. The petals don't see to overlap in yours as they do in mine, and it just looks a bit different somehow...

    See what you all think. There was no tag, but it said oncid & odont on the pot.

    Beallara Tahoma Glacier 'Green' in post # 4 and Beallara Tahoma Glacier 'Ithan' in post # 1. Or that is my best guess from the photos posted above.
    See http://www.zefyr.us/Beallara.html

    Wow, subtle differences, eh? But I think you have mine pegged. The photos you linked to really look like it! Except the spots on mine climb a little bit further out on the petals.

    It seems the biggest difference in the two varieties is that the spots are lighter on the outer petals on the 'green' (mine), looking more faded than they do on the 'Ithan'. And the lower petal (lip, do you call it?) on the 'green' gets wider at the bottom, and a bit more curled or dimpled.

    This is kind of a 'what's different about these two pictures' puzzler....

    Anyway they are definitely brothers if not twins
