Wendlandii has "almost round" leaves while trinasutum has longer and narrower leaves. I grow both species, including the rare alba form of wendlandii but I can't remember if the fragrance is different, and none of my plants are in bloom now.
    PS, wendlandii will bloom more than once a year. I keep my plants drier in winter. Cool and/or wet can kill those plants easily.
    This is great information Tom, thanks a lot!

    Well, I think KEW list is a great database, but from my own experience I know not everything they say is quite correct. I am afraid they are wrong this time too.
