I have a group of setosa growing in my garden raised from seed.  The leaves
are quite like a versicolor, much wider than your description.  After
blooming setosa grows on into a strong and vigorous plant.

There are many forms of this species on the SIGNA list, I suppose one could
have a narrow leaf but not the two sorts I have raised from seed.
