What is it?
i dunno, but you have more?
I can't say I've ever seen that one before. I really like the leaf shape. I can't really tell, but are the older leaves mostly green in color?
Would you happen to know it's origin?
This one came from a home in Venice, Fl back in 2005. Phil and I stumbled across the plant accidentally. I thought maybe it was a seedling but then found another specimen about a mile from my parents house in north Tampa. With 2 specimens so far apart, it has to be a distributed variety from years ago. It greens out sometimes but for a yellow variety, it keeps very good color in more shady conditions.
Yes. I recall that trip well. Cutting I had died. You were calling it a White Tapestry back then. Good to see it's growing well whatever name is eventually attached to it.
After further investigation Phil, it's not White Tapestry but something interesting nonetheless.
The color and splotching are identical to The Swan. Could this be a sport from that variety?
Anything in possible Ricky. Some sports don't look like the mother i.e. Rheedii and Candy Cane.
What's going on with this unusual plant? Did it make it through the last artic blast? I hope you still have it growing.
It made it through like a champ. Bob saw it and mentioned the name Long Leaf Yellow but wasn't realy sure.
Ray - How about an updated photo of "Long Leaf Yellow" or is it Quirko?
You should share a cutting or two so that if your plant dies, this one may be gone too.
I'll be bringing a nice 3G to Rick's sale. It was the top of my large plant which was air layered after Jan 2010.
Hmmm - any more air layers going to be around in the Spring Ray?
