    Mike,

    Trinidad's nearly equatorial climate probably has something to do with that.

    I don’t know the name but definitely it is not “Pink Eburneum”.
    Below is the pictures of what I think is the same variety.

    I'd go with Pink Charmer for your plants, Sergey, due to the ruffled edges and the different blotching pattern. Now I'll have to take some pics of the two side by side...

    Here's aPin or Rose Charmer in the ground to the left and a Pink Eburnum air layer to right (needs time to develop the pink) - give them another 20 years and they'll look like the big plants....

    The feature that distinguish Pink Eburneum from others is nonchlorophyllic mutation on leaves.

    The variety in Allan’s picture looks more like Pink Charmer to me. However close-up pictures will be very helpful.

    Thank you for photos! I’m sure it’s the same variety as in my pictures.
