    My guesses

    1. Johanna Coppinger
    2. Yellow Andreanum
    3. ?
    4. The veining resembles Andreanum but the semi-oak leak shape reminds me of Antilla.

    Ricky - is the Swan not often encountered? This is a striking diminutive cultivar in my opinion. Thank you for your help. :cool:

    Ron - Don't know, but I've got 3 of them in the ground, all around 5' tall.

    Ricky, The Swan has longer leaves.

    Those look pretty long. Mine are around 8" and the original plant came from Jesse Durko with a "positive" ID.

    It looks more like C.I. Craigin to me.
