    The first four pictures were taken early this morning and is what I call Petra, recently during a visit to two independent nurseries I found two other plants (which I assume are both Petra) but somehow seem different. This gives me a sense of unease for some odd reason.

    Notice the color differences, the first with a olive green and pink effect and the other with red in the older leaves.

    They live long enough to go in the ground.
