    I was given a bunch of cuttings awhile back from someone who did not know what they were. :) They have grown out somewhat and I am anxious as to what they may be. :eek: I understand that they are a bit small but curious if anyone may have any idea what they may be? :confused:

    Appears to be another Van Buren, also in need of sun. Van Buren is one of those varieties that goes from lots of pink to lots of yellow/green, depending on the light characteristics. It's possible that this is a Davis #7, but the leaf looks too narrow.

    Ricky - Unknown #1 gets morning sun then gets good shading the rest of the day. This was in a 4 inch shallow container, stepped up into a one gallon. I am looking to push root development before the cold winds blow - that is why I have it in a shaded aspect. :)

    Your ID was my first opinion as well at this stage. :eek:

    Ricky - I have not seen any blush of color on Unknown #2 as of yet. It is positioned right next to Unknown #1 getting the same growing and lighting conditions. Is there such a thing as a Yellow Van Buren ? :confused:

    Time will hopefully tell. :eek:

    Remember Ron, these plants are very small and young. Their ultimate colors probably won't come out fully until next summer sometime.

    This one looks like it could be a Freckles ? :confused:

    It has performed growth-wise very well for me and has been stepped up into a three gallon container. It is my understanding that Freckles is reportedly on the slow side, but this plant's leaves appear much larger than my Pinocchio. ;)

    Yea, my opinion is to grow them on. Then come back and hit us hard w/ pictures! I'm sure there will be a few nice additions to the Mooseland.
