Hi

I assume this is bergeri, but then I find my assumptions are often wrong!  Interesting in that I posted it before when I got it, and it looked quite a bit different.  In fact, Gonzer specifically noted how difficult it can be to ID photos!  It has changed a lot. 

When it first started to bloom I assumed aeranthos, since I have various clones of that blooming now, and none of the bergeri are even starting.  But the white center is conclusive, isn't it?

Bergeri. The confusion between aeranthos and this species is a given. Just remember that bergeri's petals are light violet with a twist and aeranthos' petals are purple.

Thanks again for the confirmation.

curious if

1.  do you find yours bloom at different times, as I mentioned my aeranthos are all blooming or just finished, while none of the bergeri cept this one

2.  the bergeri has a much shorter inflorescence than aeranthos - is that typical
