    What a pain in the toosh! Renaming with previously used names is not only over-the-top anal-retentive (and that should be an oxymoron, but not in this instance), it's moronic!

    Holy craps! Are they pulling the rugs on us again? They are changing the names of my most favorite phrag species? How moronic!!!

    Hi Gin,
    Since Jason did such a great job in telling you those species (most commonly available, caudatum, warscewiczianum, and wallisii), I don't have much to add except that there might be varieties for some of the aforementioned species, like Phrag. caudatum var. sanderae.
    I think that your caudatum is such a great plant. 28 in. petals and still growing!!! Holy COW indeed!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    as far as I know nobody is calling the old phrag wallisii (with the cream colored flowers) warscewiczianum. I have heard conflicting reports that this "popowii" thing, (the dark one, what used to be called warscewiczianum and what I CONTINUE TO CALL warscewiczianum, taxonomists go to hell), may or may not be already recognized by the RHS. who the @$^@ knows?

    I personally will continue to call them by their old names since they've been that way for a century? It's bad enough that we have to call kovachii by that name and not peruvianum like it should have been called. I wonder what ended up happening to that clown?

    I think yours is a caudatum, although I've seen the cultivar 'Windy Hill' advertised as both caudatum and wars. the large size of your plant favors caudatum, as does the greenish/tan color. wars is very compact (15" leafspan on mature plants) and usually very very dark.
