Does anyone know the species of Calochortus 'Symphony'? I can't find 
any references on-line that provide a species level identification of 
this plant. It has some resemblance to C. catalinae, but I've never 
grown the plant and haven't been able to key it out.

Someone else asked recently about 'Symphony' and sent me a photo that 
is clearly Calochortus catalinae. However, I think that at one time a 
mixture of Calochortus was sold under that name. I am too tired to 
look it up (just got home from Japan) but as I recall the color of 
the anthers is distinctive.
