    Hi all, I picked this one up at Jeff's sale. It's called "One In the Head". Anyone have backround information on this one? Where did the name come from? It looks a lot like Angel Wing to me. Maybe a new hybrid?

    Randy,

    It's a seedling that's about 3 years old and was named by me. But no, it's not an Angel Wing. I'll explain later how I came up w/ the name.

    Randy - the end of the leaf is elongated and extended way more than an Angel Wing would be. I don't believe that Jeff has offered this cultivar at his sale before. It also may have been the one and only of this cultivar available. Great score !!! :cool:

    That could be a twin for that Coppinger hybrid

    Randy's plant looks like it has a wider area beneath the lobes and the base below the lobes is much more extended/elongated in my opinion. Chris - I actually was thinking about your Tim Anderson cultivar when first viewed this thread because of the unusual extended leaf tip.

    Chris,
    Tim calls his plant Mr. Little because that's who gave it to him. When Keith told me it was a Coppinger hybrid, I started calling it that.

    Marie...So you're saying that the plant I have is a Coppinger hybrid. Mr Little. I wonder what Henry called it. That's cool if it is. I really don't have enough of those. Chris
