I've grown this from SIGNA seed and donated seed this year. I'm pretty sure what I have is not Anomatheca. The foliage is very similar to the L. jacquinii that I have but quite distinct from the various forms of A. laxa that I have. The Anomatheca have straight upright leaves, where as the two Laperousia's leaves are curved and close to the "ground" with some wavy edges. I don't have any photos to compare to those Jim posted.
