Pink convallaria is still very much with us and fairly readily 
available. However, it's something of a disappointment. The plant is 
smaller than the white forms, and the color is a slightly dull, dusty 
rose-pink, not a nice clear pink as you might imagine.

Myself, I'd like to go zipping back to the beginning of the Cambrian 
and watch the critters found in the Burgess shales.

Does anyone know what, if any, proposals have been made to put this 
into a distinct species?
