    that is a huge leaf. Thanks for the photos. I think I have that one. Does it turn more yellow in more sun?

    more sun - more yellows; a whole lot of sun and leaves get smaller also and lots of yellows.

    I have the Diane growing in filtered sun with a shot of full sun as it sets to the west.

    Here is a Diane that stays shaded until around 1:00 pm. It's on the west side of house and gets some severe sun in the afternoon. This is the largest leaf on the plant measuring 15 inches, 19 1/2 inches including the petiole. The usual leaf size is about 12-13 inches in length. :) Photo by my son James.

    Scott - you need to apply the Judy Glock juicing technique. :rolleyes:

    Scott,

    Your plant looks really nice, it looks like it's getting just the right amount of sun. And Ron, not too shabby of a plant too. This cultivar makes a great landscape plant as well because of it's fast rate of growth and it's enormous size of leaf.

    Here is a Sybil Griffin with a 17 inch long leaf. Photo by my son James. Judy Juicing is a possibility. :rolleyes:
