    Here is another unknown I have that I really like. It gives nice color year-round and takes lots of sun. I got it from Keith maybe a year or a year and a half ago and this year it grew nicely. It's had mostly the yellows and greens of new growth, but now you can see it's getting some pinks. It will get a darker pink to orange-pink later on. This plant is the one I thought resembled Phil's Cranberry. Phil, if you can, could you post a photo to compare? David also has a similar one that he just made cuttings of. David, if you can, can you post yours? They're probably all different, but who knows?

    Thanks, Phil. I kinda see a resemblance, but my plant is so much younger/smaller, it's difficult to extrapolate. Also, mine is behind on its pinks. I think in a couple of months it will be a more deep rose/orangy- pink like yours. I think only time will tell whether it could be the same. Does anyone else have a Cranberry from a long time ago when it was distributed?

    Phil, love the pinks in your yard. Gotta love that Lucille Alonzo. I got a small one at the last Searle extravaganza and it's growing nicely, but nothing like yours yet. It's also behind on the pinks.
