    Both these were posted as Don Quixote. I'd like to enter them if they are truly agreed upon. Can someone confirm or deny this ID? Please, I need answers so weigh in if you have one!:)It would be a new entry to the wiki, so I want to make certain. Thanks!

    Don Quixote is a very unstable example of a very unstable plant type. I don't doubt that both of the examples you posted are correct. My plant on the left is only three years old from a very small cutting. It has been in the slow to color and the leaves are stretching out as it matures. I have two will post both. image.jpg image.jpg

    I'm unfamiliar with this cultivar. Lamar's 2nd photo in post #1 and the first in post #2 seems to have some affinities to Connie Cutler in my opinion ?

    Ana,
    The first two photos and the subsequent postings by Lamar look like Don Quixote to me.
