"Well, I disagree on at least two of these. ( I know, here we go again). The first, page 18-UR, can't be a White Polychrome, Polychrome has shoulders and the croton in the picture clearly dosen't. It's a White Gloriosa, straight out of the Hayward's Garden. And the second, page 54-LR, I still believe to be the correct Dreer #7. I have a Rapture and took it to the Glock's meeting this past December where Bob A. and Mark H. positively identified it as such. Their a little close, but side by side, their two worlds away."
"I also just found another one to be highly questionable. In the correction list, page 18-LR, it says it should be Crossroads, a sport from Stoplight. That's all fine, and looking at the above picture that Bud posted, it does look like it has Stoplight written all over it. BUT, his picture and the picture on page 18, are two totally different looking plants. At least to me. What do others think?"
