There isn't much information out there on this potential variety. The staminodal shield does differ slightly from hirsutissimum. We will sib a couple plants and see how stable this is in the next generation.

Whats the 'uniqueness' of these?


Not much other than they seem to be smaller plants. If they are a valid sub-species or variety, it is worth maintaining the gene pool.
