Rbert, your photo does not resemble either WILLIAM
MOHR or CAPITOLA as I knew them. I would suggest, if this is an OB at all,
it is (quantum referent--sorry) not more than a quarter and possibly
WILLIAM MOHR is short, has strongly recurved
foliage, has almost the pattern identical to some forms of *gatesii* and is one
that requires--or at least seems to enjoy--annual division and reset.
Losses of either it or CAPITOLA plantings tend to be high, but the varieties can
be kept going with patience and frequent division--annual being best in my
CAPITOLA is a great deal larger plant than WILLIAM
MOHR, also has strongly OB character and the suggestion of a "fingerprint'" type
signal. Pollen production is copious on some blossoms, totally lacking on
others, and the stem tends to "S" curve all over the place. WILLIAM MOHR
does not do this. It is short, but upright, with quite a large bloom of
globular form as I recall.
