Author's notes

This plant appears to be a hybrid between D. chryseopsis and D. nigromontana. It has come up in the same place each year since at least 2012 and flowers always have the same form. Flowering time is between those of the presumptive parent species.

I have confirmed this Cath; I have seen similar hybrids on Black Mountain that persisted for a couple of years.
