Will you post you pictures of what your Saturn looks like. I have an imposter. I think it is the one on the left from the frog people.

Hey Julia, based on
I'd say it is on the right, since theirs doesn't look like it has much cilia.
@Jungleshadows Kevin are you able to make a guess or @Valleylynn any ideas!
For some reason whenever someone mentions 'Saturn' I mix it up with 'Sunset' not good!!!
I tip my hat to you.

Here's what I got from Chris/Goldfinch4 last summer. It seems like a reasonable facsimile to your right-hand image.
The left-hand image seems clearly wrong to me. I think the frog lies.

However, I don't think any of this matches

I think we will need Kevin's help on this one.
I don't think I would trust the Frog people on semps. I was at Al's Garden Center today, and they had 6 or 7 different semps from the Frog people. Some I know were incorrect. Wish I would have take photos. Saturn was not among them.

Greg that is funny - I always get Saturn and Sunset mixed up too! It's because I bought them both at the same time I think Blinking same with Grunrand and Goldrand.

Julia - I sure like the one on the left, but doesn't look like Saturn
