Hi Fermi,

Jasmin and I have heard reports that the weather in Southeastern Australia has turned unseasonably warm and extremely dry. Wildfire alerts have been issued. We do not know if you are in this extreme wildfire zone or not. We are hoping you are safe from the wildfire danger and that things are going well for you this spring.

Earlier you asked about the name change of Dichelostemma capitatum to Dipterostemon capitatus ssp. capitatus. In California, Dipterostemon capitatus is now in current usage. The name change seems appropriate given the genetic differences between other species in the Themidaceae family. From what I have heard even Themidaceae is of questionable usage depending on where one lives. So far, Themidaceae is still in usage in California.



Dipterostemon capitatus ssp. capitatus ‘Skunk Hollow White’ is an exceptional white clone I found near the South Fork of the American River.



Dipterostemon capitatus ssp. capitatus grows abundantly on our Placerville property in the Sierra Nevada foothills. There is a great deal of noteworthy genetic variability in this species if one takes the time to examine the plants closely. The flowers can range form white through deep blue and even occasionally hints of lavender-pink. I have even observed bicolored flowers. Flower color is just one characteristic with a range of variability within this species. There are other variable characteristics of interest.

Thanks, Robert,
for the reminder of the name change - I'm a slow adopter of name changes!  ;)
