    Got this from Mike (Bullwinkle) as Maryland. Phil saw Bullwinkle's mother plant and thought it was Maryland. Since Phil is the only person who has a Maryland that I know of ... well ? :eek:

    Jeff Searle saw my plant and feels that it is Baron Le Comte'. Judy Glock saw it and is on the fence what it is (perhaps leaning towards Baron Le Comte'). :confused:

    Any ideas? :confused:

    I see pink not orange in the photos. I would say it's a Maryland

    I for one would like to know the differences. I saw the plant in Phils yard (last year ?) labeled as Maryland and Rob and I couldn't really see the differences between it and the Baron. Bob A. probably is our best bet on the two ID's, but he's been pretty quiet over the years.
