    I found this on a bike ride west of my house. If was really rough but is growing out nicely can the troop name it at this stage? image.jpg image.jpg

    Lamar, I don't know either, but my first thought was Christmas. The leaf shape might be a bit different, but your top photo especially looks like it to me. Let's see what others think.

    Also, I think my Bravo resembles your plant even more. Not 100% sure, though. Different growing conditions and all the other excuses. See what you think:

    David, I wish that was mine, but it's Jerry Shilling's. I took the photo from the wiki to show Lamar. I have one that I got from Judy that is looking pretty good though. I really like this cultivar.

    Has some similarities to L.M. Rutherford, can't be certain until Lamar grows it on.
