no other photos taken, I have asked for at least a photo of the plant.  Was told "They did not take a picture of the whole plant. I guess the reason why is the is that the only distinguishing trait for this “species” is flowering time. I guess they figured the measurements were enough. I can ask the exhibit for an image of the whole plant if needed" Rob Griesbach
