    Cardinale blooms have much shorter and rounder petals from the parent schlimii and the pouch is also much darker. Those petals are a bit narrower and longer, similar to Sedenii. Just my observation.

    There have been AOS awards to Cardinale 'Birchwood', schlimii 'Birchwood', and schlimii 'Wilcox'. They are all one and the same. I have no idea what the "first" clonal name is.

    You know it's an addiction when you scoff at AOS judges. But then again, they did give the coveted FCC to a WHITE PHAL a few years ago. And their track records when it comes to schlimii and caudatum is less than perfect.
