Those are quite some photos - well, those that loaded, at least. But from the names lower down, there are some new ones, unless they are just old ones revived.

It does go to show, though that the variability of many species is just so much wider than we often think, simply because what is introduced to cultivation is just one specific form.

I think its great that such plants do exist, and are still able to be found and photographed. Must check the seed lists....
