    This one came from Jesse Durko's last year. Is this Bimbo or is it? :confused:I believe it originally came from Marie. It hasn't grown any or lost a leaf since I got it. Soon as it warms up I'll fert it.

    Hi Randy,
    I don't recognize it. Does it have our tag in it? If so,it may be one of the cuttings that John Criswick brought up from Greneda for Jesse and me. I rooted them and then shared with Jesse.

    It has a resemblance to Stained Glass.

    Bimbo has variable leaves but the characteristic overlap of the outer lobes over the center lobe is visible on some.

    Marie, These 2 didn't have tags, but the "Pink Lei" I picked up at the same time had your tag buried in the pot. These plus a few more were in horrible condition. Scale, mealy bugs, dry & severe sunburn. They were in such bad shape when I got them, I waited until they recovered a bit before posting. I was surprised to find Marie's tag. They were mixed in with more common stuff baking in the sun.
