@zuzu, I want to post some pictures of wild-growing E.s., but the entry for the generic plant seems (in my humble opinion) to be used for a hybrid E.s. I have never seen such colour in the wild growing plants.

What do you say?

You're right, Ursula. That doesn't look like the species. In fact, one of the photos is from Annie's Annuals, where it's identified as a cultivar -- Pink Lemonade. I'm going to edit the current entry and give you a new entry for your species photos. Here's the new one:

Another question @zuzu (for all my postings on Chilean native flora):

Is it OK with you if I post pictures first (now that I know how to do it, who could stop me? Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! ) and add the data once I finish with the pictures?

Of course. As you said, who would stop you? Rolling on the floor laughing

Thank you once again. My previous computer had Windows'98 - than came the many 'computerless' years, and now this one has Windows 8.1. That was a change!!! and now they want me to update to Windows 10 ....

I still have Windows 7. It's new enough for me. Smiling
