What I like about this plant is the fact he named it after his wife Lucille. Also the images above show loads of variation in this one patch. The species C.lucililae is likely to the one with larger and fewer flowers, this includes the one with recurred petals. The one with loads of flowers is likely to be C.ishei which is the common garden variety.
