........but VFT trigger hairs as the only difference between cultivars?

Not that I disagree, but hair length is the distinguishing factor for the
cultivar S. purpurea vensoa v. montane. The rolled leaf so characteristic
of montane is culturally sensitive. Plus, I've seen venosa on the Gulf
coast with similarly rolled leaves.


P.S. I still grow v. montane.
