At least two postings in this current Ipheion thread have mentioned seeds of
'Alberto Castillo'.

Does anyone know if the original 'Alberto Castillo' was meant to be a clone?
Was it a selection from a wild population of white-flowered plants? 

If it was a selection from a wild white-flowered population, then it might
be time for the taxonomists to take another look at the rank of that

If it was meant to be a clone, then I hope those of you raising them from
seed do not distribute them as 'Alberto Castillo'. Or is that horse already
out of the barn?
