    This form is often called alba, however, the correct terminology is flava. If it was truly an alba it would be white.

    I entered my flava cornu-cervi in a show earlier this spring as flava and the person registering the plant took it upon themselves to change the registration to alba. The plant got nominated for an AOS award and I sat in on the judging comments. The first thing the judges said was that the plant was incorrectly registered as alba when it should be flava .

    I agree with Susan, the flowers are yellow so are a 'flava' variety as I noted on my photo.

    Totally missed the name on the photo, Daniel. Of course. I was completely distracted with the blooms.
