Thanks for the replies, Fred and Alani.

I suspect that Ellen Bosanquet or a look-alike is better suited to my
climate than Cinthro Alpha, so I'm not displeased. I wonder if this was
just a one-off error in the packing, or if Costco's supplier uses the same
bag and photo for whatever cultivar they happen to have available in
