Comparison of the two species in bloom. The dianthum bloomed last year with 2 flowers. Only one this year. The parishii is a first time bloomer with only one fan.

I prefer parishii but the dorsal is very twisted. It had 3 flowers (first is already brown and may have self pollinated or an insect performed the deed).

The parishii flowers looked a bit warped … possibly due to first time bloom. Let’s see what happens on subsequent bloomings.

parishii dorsals furl a lot but dont often twist.
Fat petals on the diathum
I wholeheartedly agree: the dianthum is great! That twirling dorsal in the parishii bothers me some, though. Let's hope its a one off - and not a stable feature!
