This is a natural form rather than a cultivar. It looks like we have at least 2 different varieties in our database, and I'm not sure any of them look like the correct plant. See the German site:

@valleylynn - what do you think?

Thank you Patty, it certainly does look like another incorrect semp in the U.S. Sad
@goldfinch4
What do you think Chris? How do yours compare with the German site? I don't have that one.

I will leave it up to each of your to delete your photos if they don't match what the correct Tokajense looks like. Sad

Mountain Crest has it as tectorum and Liste as marmoreum. Looks much more like a marmoreum to me.

I agree with Jo Ann, it definitely should look like a marmoreum, not a tectorum.

Looks like we need to clear all the photos out of this entry. Sad

Okay, I just made some changes to the entry. Also added a comment at the bottom of the page, under the photos.
Now to notify people that their photos are incorrect.
