This is quite a variable species, with several varieties recognized by 
Flower color is as follows:
The type: Rose, or more rarely lilac or white, with a yellow tube.
var. concolor: Reddish purple, tube concolorous
var. montana: rosy or pale mauve, with a yellow tube.

Accoring to Salter it has often been misidentified and/or confused with O. 
depressa and O. convexula. O commutata differs  from these by the complete 
absence of the stipula-like wings below the articulation at the base of the 
petiole. (Salter, page 201-203)
