    Randy,

    I'm pretty confident that I have Dreer #7 and I also have America ( through Phil ). Different looking plants.

    This one came from Bob Sabourn. I'll have to visit him & try to find the mamma plant.

    Nice plant but America is not an oak leaf.

    Randy - if I recall correctly, it is located NW of Bob's detached A/C'd "work room/shed" near the gate going to the public area of his collection. I believe he had it tagged as Zadroga. :confused: But, my memory has me failed before. :D

    I think Zadroga is a broad leaf, not oak leaf. :confused:

    Zadroga was a David McLean name for Mrs. WF Dreer.

    Very true Ricky.

    I'm convinced West Wall has an old name too.
