    Marie Nock told me that her experience with Amabile is that strong light conditions are needed to look its best.

    Sweet looking Pretty Bird in #80. I would definitely swap something else out on my Top 20 list for it.

    85 is another of JC's seedlings from Key Largo
    87 is a nice seedling that I have yet to share or name,nice big leaves and decent color.
    88 is an unnamed slow pink plant that I traded with someone a few years ago,cannot remember who??
    89 is one of the AFD's,never been really good at naming those.

    Wow, Mike I have never seen an AFD with that extreme Oak Leaf. The color is very much AFD 7/9 (Phil's Fog) image.jpg

    Oooooohhhhh.... These have to have names. Gorgeous. Mike, how long have you lived in your new place? Hasn't it only been about two years? How have your plants grown so much so fast? Mine creep along in comparison.

    93 is Blotched Williams Jennings Bryan from Jeff
    and I think 94 is Davis 14.I have been here 2 years and 1 month.Things grow pretty well here as the soil is great.No rocks, sandy with lots of organic material.

    That Blotched William Jennings Bryan is amazing. You're definitely doing something right. My soil is really good too with lots of organic matter, but I don't get the growth you do. Maybe the cooler months here are just enough to slow things down?
