    It looks like "Ronald Reagan". The full sun did the same thing to mine.

    That's a very old variety known as Gloriosum Superbum (not the same as Gloriosa). It's been showing up at Target and Lowe's with some frequency over the last few years. A St. Pete nursery called Dolin's has big ones right now.

    Ray, I purchased these at a old nursery here in Citrus Park (3 gal. for $5 each). This was the only variety they had, and they wanted to get them out of the nursery before Winter.I am off from work this week, so I am going to check out a few more out of the way nurseries.

    Scott,
    Make the drive over to Dolin's on 62nd Ave in St. Pete. They've got about 12 varieties available.
