    Anyone know what this is? It looks like a ____________. It's a cutting, but I forgot where I got it. If you don't know, I'll accept a guess. :)

    Thanks, Randy

    It looks like something we know, but I'm drawing a blank at the moment. Very nice, Randy.

    I can see at least 3 different color patterns and two different leaf shapes. Any positive ID of this one is going to have to wait until you get a few more leaf generations. But it looks like a stunner!

    Randy,

    I think I just figured this one out. It looks just like my Martha Brooks planted by the seedhouse. The colors, leaf shape and size all appear to be identical. I don't have a pic. of it to compare, but I'm openned for debate.:)

    My gut insrinct was Heaven a/k/a Scarecrow. I could probably be swayed to another suggestion. :rolleyes:

    Randy - you need to get a note book and start recording your sources and or location of the plants you are getting. ;)

    Looks like a Gen MacArthur to me. One head is not good for an ID, but the whole plant will just shout Gen Mc - if it is one.

    Randy - What does it look like 7 months later? Could we get an updated photo? :)

    Do you recall where you got it from? :confused:

    I really think it's a good clone of General MacArthur.
