Clarkia?

Here is a link that might be useful: formerly called Godetia

As Saltcedar says - Clarkia amoena aka Clarkia grandiflora aka Godetia grandiflora.

Godetia grandiflora is a synonym of Clarkia amoena ssp. lindleyi but Clarkia grandiflora is a synonym of Clarkia concinna.

You may well be right, nonmember. I used the RHS site to check the name(s). Could you point me towards a reference that C concinna and C grandiflora are synonyms? I wasn't able to find one.

Thanks, nonmember - a very useful resource. I like the 'confidence level' stars. Just goes to show how fluid these things are.
