Here's another one from Selby. Now, they had a Tacca integrifolia and I see that in the Db, no problem there. But they also had one that was named Tacca integrifolia 'Nivea'. I would think that means a cultivar name, but from what I'm seeing on the internet, I'm confused. Is it a cultivar and is that how it should be added?

I googled Tacca 'Nivea' but is the species integrifolia or chantrieri?? A few places had listings for Tacca chantrieri 'Nivea' while a few others showed Tacca integrifolia 'Nivea'. Confused

Here's an entry for it, Mellie. I left out the species name because of the disagreement on various sites.

If it's white, should that not mean it's T. integrifolia?

It probably is integrifolia, but it could also be a hybrid, I suppose. With so many websites calling it T. chantrieri, I hesitate to identify it definitively as T. integrifolia.

Thanks! I thought it looked the same as the T. integrifolia but I'm no expert. They were both in the greenhouse at Selby but they were marked differently. I double checked!
