Hi all
Does anyone know how to tell the difference between ‘Little Beauty’ and ‘Pledge’?
This was bought as ‘Pledge’ but to my eye it’s ‘Little Beauty’

    Hi Mark,
    I don’t know the cultivar Pledge but the photo you posted suggested a flower with narrower perianth segments than what I grow as Little Beauty. Of course there is no guarantee that my cultivar is correctly named either!!
    What I have as Little Beauty looks like a bicolour replica of Little Gem.

    Pledge is a white trumpet, “Little Beauty” is nowhere near a ‘white’ or a ‘Trumpet’–
    We grow both here in Oregon, there’s  no comparison–
    Hope this helps, Gene and Fran Cameron

    Bill and others on Daffnet:
    I was making the case for two distinct cultivars, but I was not able to open the photo of the flower in question. I suspect Little Beauty was sent in error, a fairly common event in some quarters–
