This is the true A. hildebrandii. Material once widely distributed under this name is correctly known as A. humilis. This can be seen especially in the distinctive flower shape of the true A. hildebrandii.

This comparison photo clearly illustrates the distinctly different flower shapes of these similar species. Aside from the different shapes, note the purple color of the stamens on A. hildebrandii.
