    Lord Belhaven - distinct veining

    Major Dade is more blotched with less distinct veining. Many of us (me included) believed this was Lord Belhaven.

    Thanks to Keith Hanks for clarifying this.

    Ray, I see drops of water on the leaves. Maybe by chance it rained at your place?

    No Keith, that's my garden hose at work. I had to prep the plants for a photo op.

    Someone had a question about this one so here's the bump. Incidentally, Dr. Brown's 1960 description matches the photo fairly closely. This was another plant Bob A. seemed "fairly" confident about during the Glock Christmas Party of 2010.
