    Yours looks just like mine Howard. I'd say you're safe with the name it has.

    Hi Bikerdoc,

    I would hate to think that there would be vendors out there, selling plants with incorrect identifications, particularly if the plants have flowered whilst in their care.

    Then I suppose there are vendors whose only concern is making a "quick buck," and they probably couldn't care less whether a plant is rightly named.

    The vendor in question is a small operation in Virginia who only wants to provide the best product for his clients and of course make a living. Dwayne Lowder is just a real down to earth kind of person. I would agree with you about some vendors who only care about how many plants they can sell for the greatest profit and don't care whether the plant is labeled correctly or even healthy!
