    This was a small rooted cutting from Rick Leitner. He guessed it may be christians landscape. Any ideas? Leaves are staying fairly small and it seems to branch out well. The stems are very orangy and the older leaves turn a spotted orange and get a dark outline on the leaf.

    I'm not sure what it is, but it's not Christian's Landscape.

    I moved one earlier this Spring. Due to our hot and very dry conditions, it totally defoliated. As it began to regenerate, the new emergent leaves looked very simular to Bren's rooted cutting. You could very well have a Christian's Landscape that has not developed its true leaf characteristic yet. Time will tell.

    Like Ron said, it's really too hard to say because of it's young size. I think C/L makes a nice landscape plant in the garden because of it's size and color.

    Bren - can you give us an updated photo? :) Did the leaves turn darker and the spots red? :confused:
