I'm sorry, I don't have the species description of C. wattiorum, so I can't 
relay that information. Obviously there are similarities, though C. 
biflorus ssp. melantherus has white (not blue) tepals and much smaller 
flowers. I think there is an article on C. wattiorum somewhere in the 
mid-1990s in the AGS journal and will try to find it.
