    Not too sure Ricky, but it doesn't look like a President Reagan.

    Ricky, it's a possibility. How about a leaf close up?

    Standby, Ray. Scott is working on the other side of the zoo right now. This is not one of the plants donated by Lamar, Randy, Ana, or me. Scott said it's hidden behind a storage shed.

    These all look like the same variety, yes? The one at the zoo has more red and pink, but that might be from its location in the shade. Is Exeter a rare variety? I'm going to have Scott put some airlayers on it in the Spring.

    Well, whatever it is, it is certainly worth propagating and distributing!

    Gosh, to my untrained eye they look to be the same cultivar, Ricky. Can anyone else comment on this for Ricky?:confused:

    They are all Exeter. Nice to know this one's gotten around.
