4. Can we expect any varieties or subspecies of A. erubescens to be|
recognized? Just to further confuse things, I note that an 1879 publication
lists A. erubescens var. consanguineum-- looks like they were mixed up a
long time ago.
5. In Yunnan last fall I saw an incredible range of variation in plants of
what we though were consanguineum/erubescens. I'm sure it is possible that
they all could be one species, but I wonder if this is really true. Is Heng
Li confident that there is a single species, or does she think some
splitting may take place? Whatever the case, it certainly is an adaptable
plant, growing in every sort of environment, wet or dry, sun or shade, from
6000' (perhaps lower) to over 11,000'.
6. From Thailand and the Phillipines, too? Are these growing far up in the
mountains, and can any be considered tropical?
7. Pardon my ignorance of Latin, but I just looked up 'erubescent' and
found out it means red or reddish. Hey, the consanguineum I grow is all
green! (not even close to dingy brown) Speaking of Latin, just what is the
'same blood' that consanguineum refers to?
8. What's the latest theory on CT369?
9. Any idea when or if this change in nomenclature will be published?
