    I snagged a few cuttings over the weekend. Any clue from the photos on an ID or do you need to see the whole plant? The largest leaves on both are at least 5 inches long. Hellooooo anybody out there???

    Thanks, Randy:D

    I really don't recall what happened to the first one, but here's the second one. The leaves open almost black, then turn red. I'm thinking maybe W Craigish, but it doesn't look like my others. DSC_0024.jpg

    Definitely not a William Craig, but I like it. It resembles something I got from B. Frank many years ago. And still unknown.

    No, not the same. Leaf shapes are different, and colors.
