distinguish "Don Jacob's Form" from "Roy Herold's Form"? One seems to have

spring, but surely there's some more obvious difference."


Thanks for our comments, Roger. 


I had to laugh when I read the one quoted above. My first acquisition of
Pinellia cordata - in a very handsomely marked Japanese form - was from a
source who did not want to disclose their source at the time of sale.


I didn't' get it from either Don Jacob or Roy Herold, so there's potentially
a third name which might appear on labels in some gardens!
