    S. colchica var. rosea has been offered by Heronswood, according to PLANT LOCATOR – WESTERN REGION. Apparently there is opportunity for confusion of names, because Thomas, ORNAMENTAL SHRUBS, CLIMBERS AND BAMBOOS says
    “While the white form is very beautiful in flower, the more usual garden plant has clear light pink flowers and is I think to be preferred. Though the species’ leaves are apt to be downy beneath, the garden form, known as ‘Rosea’, has leaves glabrous beneath, purplish when young. The variety rosea – of botanical distinction – has also pink flowers but leaves woolly beneath when young and retaining some of this woolliness into the summer.”

    In 2006 when this was posted, Daniel mentioned not having an image of the fruit. I included a photo just good enough to give the idea of what it looks like in my September 7, 2012 – Berries and Fruits posting on the UBCBG Talk about the UBC Botanical Garden thread.
