    The fastest growing seedling I've seen. Got a little beat up last week with tree trimming going on. 3' tall and 8" leaves. Chris

    Nice meeting you too. Too bad you didn't stay longer. I meant to get you some more cuttings but I know you were rushed.

    Chris - it looks like Moose Pox, LOL :eek: It is great to see an interesting one with a good growth rate. ;) So many nice looking cultivars prove to be very slow. :(

    Here's a picture of the mother. Looks a lot like pops yard but I got it fro the Davis estate. Father was polychrome,, at least obvious to me for two of the smaller plants. One off them almost totally yellow leaf and the pinky orange one that could really be nice. The one in the middle tried to kill itself twice but I pinched off the albino and maybe now it will become something. I can only guess what the tall ones father is, maybe polychrome too but I don't limit pollinating to one father and you never know if an ant brought some elanor fischler or freckles pollen. Remember these are all siblings, all out of the same batch of seed. Typical growth for a one year old are the smaller plants. Chris

    Chris, thank you! Very interesting and nice family portrait!
    “Pinky orange” nevertheless its small size already looks very beautiful.
