    In the ground over 12 years from a 3-gallon of unknown origin. The first two are the plant in deep shade. The second two are of a two or three year old cutting from the original plant. In looking at The Book, this strongly resembles the photo on page 54.

    What about this? Who named Rosie O'Grady and does anyone know the history? I took one of my air layer's from this plant to the Glock social.

    I believe while at the Glock's garden tour last month, it was determined that the plant going around under the name Dolores ( named by Richard Buttons) is the real Rosie.

    :confused: If Dolores is the real Rosie, what is the Rosie pictured in Dr Browns book?
