This is the true form of capitata peach.  What is commonly sold as capitata peach is actually riohondoensis (formerly capitata peach).  This species has thick gray leaves that stand slightly more erect that riohondoensis and can grow much larger here in Southern California than riohondoensis.  I keep mine potted as they can get quite heavy for mounting, but they will be shipped bare root
