I have added an image to the wiki page of the "elusive" Velthemia deasii.
This picture is of two different clones of V. deasii. Note that not only are
the leaves narrower and more undulated, but they are more numerous with 10
to 12 leaves being the rule. One recent aqusition kept its leaves from last
year and has 16 leaves and looking "healthy."

Some prefer to think that this is just a variation of V. capensis, but there
are several obvious differences in the two "forms."

I have been fortunate enough to have three seedlings from last year's
planting and eight from this years planting.  I hope to have more seeds from
the blooms this year.…
