I looked at the pictures on Google and think this plant looks different in the leaf shape and the way the variagation is applied

I agree that the variety with the longer, more pointed leaves is the most common one.

This is interesting ...

That looks correct......unfortunate it is not given a specific name. I wonder how it ended up here in Utah.
