    Oh my goodness, Mike, it's spectacular!!! I've never heard of a Davis Frank Brown. Do remember hearing there was 'another' Frank Brown. Can anyone comment if this should be in the wiki? Such color!

    I think it's also known as Davis #14 (our wiki picture of #14 is incorrect). There's debate on whether or not it's also called Frank Brown. Jesse Durko insists it is and has a huge plant. Ana, the other Frank Brown you've probably heard of is Coppinger's Frank Brown. I think Andy has posted a plant in a Palmpedia post.

    So, should it go in the wiki under Davis #14? Under Davis Frank Brown? What do you think? I need direction.

    Marie, the Coppinger's Frank Brown is in the wiki already grouped with Frank Brown. Any corrections, suggestions, anyone?

    Also, the plant that is under Davis #14, is that a plant that can be transferred to another heading?

    I'm am unframillar to the appearance of a Davis #14. As to what I have growing as the (big leaved) "Davis Frank Brown", it does not appear to be the same plant that Mike has posted. Really wish it would look so good.

    Ana - many ID's go unresolved for years. We saw several mysteries and some misnamed varieties get resolved this past Saturday in Ft. Myers.
