    Andy,

    I really like the pictures of 4 and 5 and 6 and 7. Very nice! Would like to see them some day in your garden too. Coppinger's Frank Brown, now that's a rare one!

    Should Coppinger's Frank Brown be placed in the wiki? Is it a legit cultivar that we know?

    Yes, by all means.

    The later photos (including the blotched cultivar) look like Davis' Dr. Brown and a really cool blotched version of that plant. I'm not sure anyone actually pointed out that there are two different Dr. Brown's. The Davis plant is much more common but also has the potential to be a gorgeous plant. Unfortunately, finding a good clone isn't easy. The Coppinger plant is much more rare but also much less attractive in my opinion.

    Just a question, do both plants have a large leaf? Very slow to color? Is it possible to get both pics.?
