Acis autumnalis subsp. oporanthus or Acis autumnalis var. oporantha? They were bought from different nurseries.
What is the difference with autumnalis?

I think  Acis autumnalis var. oporantha is the correct name.
I think the second  nursery have  muddled the old name Leucojum subsp. operanthus with the new and come  up with a hybrid name!

It seems that Acis can often have those  two flowers per stem - very nice!
