A year later, he described "E. nivalis", which he called an "exceedingly beautiful species", from specimens growing in Loddiges nursery. He also noted a form with long corollas that had been called "E. variabilis" that was in cultivation at the time, and noted it was difficult to describe the precise characteristics that distinguished "E. ceraeflora", "E. nivalis", "E. variabilis" and "E. impressa".
