- Note (11662): Vitaly Alyonkin (2014-06-23) - May be some species of Quesnelia genus???
- Identification (11662): Walter Till (2014-06-24) =Quesnelia lateralis
- Espect this species when in full flower
- Note (11662): Wesley Schilling (2014-07-08) - Check Quesnelia liboldiana. My Q. lateralis has a more elongated compact inflorescence than this picture shows. The flower on my lateralis is more Aquamarine than this beautiful deep blue purple color. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)

- Note (11687): Wesley Schilling (2014-07-08) - Thanks Geoff! My spelling is not the best sometimes and I get lazy and don't take the time to look it up!! My Bad ! (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note (11688): Eric Gouda (2014-07-09) - The plant in the back does look like a normal sized Quesnelia liboldiana. The plant in front looks a little bit small for this species. Do you have any origin information on both plants? (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Note (11688): Uncle Derek (2014-07-10) - Could well be a pot of seedlings not potted out, Been there done that. Suggest pot up one plant from the clay pot and wait for flowering! (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note (11688): Kerrry Tate (2014-07-10) - There is a Quesnelia species very like liboniana, only much smaller and fewer flowered, which matches Vitaly's small plant. I have grown and known it as Quesnelia liboniana - small form. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
