Dr. Jeff Smith has identified this plant as one of the two variants of S. confusa in the trade. The other variant, which may be seen by clicking here, has leaves that are quite different in appearance -- not at all glossy. It is possible that the two cultivars are in fact different species. If so, it is likely that this is the misnamed form, as the other was clearly described earlier than this one.
