P. dichrondrifolium is white with 5 petals.  P. tetragonum is much larger, pink and 4 petals.  THe profile of the flower is very striking.  THe growth habit of course is much different.  P. dich. a mound with small round leaves.  P. tet.  has the unusual LONG squarish stems with flowers at the end.  P. tet. as a seedling to up to a year (when a small plant-seedling)looks like a zonal until the true nature of the square stems makes itself evident and it takes off.  The young leaves may even be zoned.  My mature plants sometimes never have any leaves-sometimes very small-tiny leaves.  Long stems with flowers.
