Well, for starters, its origin is wrong. BS is Stahley '94, not Dunn

The pic is a good match to the description in the '99 Checklist, so it
well could be correct. But the way I remember it in its home garden in
Michigan, there was less white, and it really did resemble star rays,
not the more normal plicata veining shown. Also, the medium lavender
region below the beard wasn't really there--the part of the falls that
wasn't white was pretty uniformly dark.

Could different growing conditions lead to these differences? In
general, yes. For BS in particular, hard to say. I am skeptical.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,     Gerry
