Older leaves have a light pink veining color, I am thinking Elaine.
It's not Elaine. Can you get a better picture of the older leaves?
oops! you are right, posted wrong pic. That is Phillip Geduldig. Here we go for the ID plant...
Still not Elaine. Might be a President Reagan. (Seems like everything we think is rare, turns out to be a Reagan.)
Not Elaine or Philip Geduldig. Lost a big Elaine over past two winters; PG came through unharmed. See attached PG pics. ...and FWIW, Geduldig means either lucky or unlucky in Dutch from a Dutchamn who ID PG at a croton sale a few years ago. Elaine has lots of soft pinks.
OK, found an Elaine in deep shade sheltered by the fence.
First two pics are Elaine; third is Philip Geduldig. All pics here taken this morning.
Phil, My PG looks diffrent than yours. Here is PG (pic1) and same plant 1.5 yrs ago (pic2) when I got it. The plant receives 1/2 day sun.
