Differentiating this species from C. acinaciformis: the present species has yellow flowers fading to pink,leaves 12mm diam. and 130 mm long; the flower base tapering into a pedicel. C. acinaciformis has purple to pink flowers, leaves 15-25 mm diam. and 90 mm long; the flower base not tapering into a pedicel
I thank Dr. Michael Avishai for his help in differentiating the two species.
