    Sorry, Randy, it was the only one in the store. But I only went to one Publix, so there may be more of them. Anyone got a clue?

    If the photo in The Book is correct, then this is not "Excellent". And, this is "Excellent" from my garden, purchased at Home Depot and marked. The color is mostly green going to deep red, as it's planted in a very dark area.

    Agree with Borgy on this. The Publix near me also has them.I have about 2 dozen of G. Superbum that I picked up at Lowes for $2 each.

    Yep. Even looks like the one in the on-line listing. Thanks, guys. I'm going to keep it indoors until the weather gets warm.

    Here's it's home for the winter. The Dieffenbachia bowmannii to its left is a piece saved from the original plant purchased 40 years ago at EJ Korvettes in West Orange, NJ. The troll was a gift from the King of Sweden. Well, no he really wasn't the King of Sweden, but it said so on his hat.
