I've been researching Ledebouria a good bit lately and noticed the plant called 'Gary Hammer' is now being sold as L stenophylla.  From what I call tell that is a non-existent name.  Although there is/was a Scilla stenophylla however it appears to be a synonym of S leptophylla which would make it one of Venter's species , L leptophylla.  The Gary Hammer plant looks nothing like L leptophylla.  Perhaps there are plans to publish a L stenophylla??  Curious if anyone has more info on this name?
