: Can anyone tell me what the difference is between lawsonia inermis
: and lawsonia alba?

In the botany books I've been through, I've seen confusion on the
issue. The short version is that lawsonia Inermis stains keratin and
some other things red, and lawsonia alba doesn't. The confusion, in
the botany books I've seen, is over whether there is one species that
comes in more than one variant, or whether it it is two genetically
different species.
