P. delavayi var. delavayi f. lutea (Delavay ex Franch.) S.G.Haw (2001)
P. ludlowii has mostly single carpels, while P. delavayi var. lutea has usually 2-4.
According to most recent taxonomy, the earlier P. delavayi and P. lutea are combined into the same species P. delavayi. In order to aid in this transition, the references on the yellow-blooming form of the species is shown here, while those on the species as well as the red-blooming form of the species are combined and shown under P. delavayi. The dwarf forms can be found under P. delavayi var. angustiloba.
