Manfreda question

I'm glad to see that Dennis is keeping the Manfreda ball rolling. 

I have a question for those with more experience with this group. Years ago
in a local planting here in the Washington, D.C. area I saw a nice thick
clump of what I took to be Manfreda virginica. They were labeled Manfreda
virginica. The plants were very robust, bigger than the Manfreda virginica I
grow in my garden. From memory I remember the leaves being easily over a
foot long and several inches wide. 

And there was this about the leaves: they had distinctly rippled, wavy

I saw the plants in mid-May. 

Are there especially robust forms of Manfreda virginica with leaves with
wavy margins? Or was I seeing one of the TexMex species?
