I grew several plants from seed labeled as D. viridiflora, but I'm afraid they are in fact a small-flowered (and quite lovely) form of D. lutea (according to, that's a common mis-identification in the trade). So even though I'm putting up a photo here of what I have now, I'll still be looking for the real thing.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
