    here's some new acquisitions from today's meeting. If you donated the plant and have more info on it, pls pass it on to Anna for the Wiki.
    First two should be Helen Rutherford, followed by two each of Bonnie Wade, Bob Marley, and Ashley King.
    Bonnie Wade from Bullwinkle and Bob Marley from Lamar Sapp.

    I did not find several of my auction purchases either so I will get them in the WIKI soon.

    I added Helen Rutherford to the WIKI during my lunch break. Someone please check it. Things have changed since I added to it last time. I also wasn't sure if there was a standard format I was supposed to use. I just copied code from another Rutherford plant

    Hey, sorry I haven't been around much, but I've had a minor crisis keeping me busy. Bren, I was going to ask about Helen Rutherford. In the past, this croton had been entered in the wiki as Ellen Rutherford and had been labeled as this by several others including Marie, Ron and David. It looks like the same plant as what Phil got, I think. Does anyone beg to differ? I think it must be Ellen Rutherford. Do you mind if I switch that over there and delete Helen? Also, your entry looked great! The only minor thing I would add is to use all capitals on the page name to keep things uniform, otherwise it looks great to me.

    Ana, I believe it was Jeff that called it "Helen" & he said it was different than Ellen.

    *Are we posting here the pictures of the "new stuff" that doesn't have enough pictures in the wiki?

    *I also would like to find out who I got the Bonita and the William Craig from.

    Speaking of wiki, some crotons are not there at all, like Herringbone. (Brenda got a good plant at the auction).
    Also, when I was looking up some of my plants earlier, it wasn't listed by name. I had to look it up by the leaf shape (which was a bit trickier), and it was there. I don't remember what it was, but I can figure out. Everything should be listed alphabetically by name, right?

    Pix, I think ultimately what we'd like to see is the users posting their own pictures and info in the WIKI but it can be a little intimidating so lately, Ana has been uploading new photos. I'll let her chime in on where to send them but I'm sure this thread would be fine too.
    I do plan on uploading that herringbone to the WIKI soon! If you remember which plant was not listed alphabetically in the list, let us know so we can correct the problem.

    Oh, really? Randy, do me a favor and look at the photos of Ellen Rutherford and let me know if you think it's the same as yours or different. I cannot tell any difference, but you know your plant best. I will PM Jeff to see if he will join us and clarify this. Thanks! In the meantime, we will leave Bren's Helen Rutherford be.

    Pix, I could be wrong, but I think perhaps your Bonita and maybe the William Craig came from Judy and Jim?

    Thank you, Ana. You are right. Now I remember.

    *Curly Boy is not listed in the wiki; and also I was trying to say that the Herringbone is not listed (not mentioned at all).

    Pix, Scott and Bren are now in charge of the wiki. If you have a good photo of Curly Boy, please post it so they can get a new page started. I'm sure Bren will post a photo of her beautiful new Herringbone to add to the wiki also. Thanks.

    Anna, Actually no, I am not in charge of anything. Where did this come from? I volunteered to help with a WIKI project from 2011 if we choose to pursue it. Let me say what I said in the other thread and our PM, the WIKI is a collective effort and I can help as time permits. I'm not interested in being in charge of anything.

    October Surprise. Supposedly Tali with a different name. Phil had this plant in his yard, and he was pretty confident that they are synonymous. 20151031_180136.jpg

    A little confusion on the name here. I thought Phil called it Beauty of Windemere. In the WIKI it is under Pride of Wynmere. First pic is of plant in Phil's yard, second of the auction plant. 20151031_103827.jpg 20151031_180206.jpg

    Not only would I love to add this to my collection here at the house someday, but I recommend that you consider attaching the Glock name to this. It would be well deserving. It's beautiful!
