    Nice...

    Besides a smaller flower, how can you tell if it’s a chiwuanum variety? Plant looks as big as the hirsutissinums. Just wondering...

    Any close up pics?

    I thought chiuwanuim variety is a bigger flower with less purple and more brown, I know this one is aurum, I'm referring to regular variety of both

    No, var chiwuanum is the smaller flower version in China.

    I love the flower in the first photo!

    But I'm with Leslie in that it's hardly likely, it's chiwuanum due to the sheer size of the flower and the heavily undulated margins of the petals. Looks rather esquiroleish to me!

    May we have a close-up?
