    You know Randy it is very fat. Good description. When I first read your post I thought you said flat!

    Very nice!
    The leaves are not typical of this species, though.
    Just putting in my observation rather than questioning.

    Interesting. Here are eight plants grouped together, can you pick out which is lawrenceanum?

    The plant on the bottom, right recently got moved down to my lower bench. Getting too yellow for my taste.

    Actually all 8 plants are suppose to be lawreneanums. The 4 at the top are albums and the 4 across the bottom are colorums.

    PS. I found another hyeaum in low bud. So maybe the judges will like it better then the first one.

    I guess I'm just used to seeing one type, that is perfectly checkered patterns.
    I would have said bottom 4.
    No such thing as "fixed" standard, educational. Thanks for the photo!

    By the way, in this small sample, the albums seem a lot more vigorous.
    I saw that Orchid Inn has this listed, but where did you get the colored variety if I may ask?
    I don't think I've seen them offered other than recent eBay listing by Peter (BigLeaf).
