    Here's three different Fishbones in the yard under varying light contitions. I'd expect some variation in the leaves and petiole length depending on cultural conditions.

    To the right is a very nice Kentucky; on the left is one similar, but not identical, to Eleanor Fisher.

    Allan - in my opinion, I think that is a Fishbone. Mine does weird color patterns throughout the year. That is still a young plant.

    I really love all your posts. Keep them coming my friend! :cool:
