    Jerry, that's what I have as Inca too. I think this is the true Inca. The ones in the wiki look good too.

    Here is another Leota Source: Marie
    Its pretty slow but can be planted in an intimate area that won't outgrow its situation for a long time. :)

    Leota is looking a lot like Colonel Lindbergh.

    WHAT??? Not even close, come on, the Colonel really stands out with colors, even in all day shade. Here something most people don't know. The actual C/L plant is a veined plant with a lot of yellow and green as their prominent colors and the other form is the one with the blotch colors, mainly reds. Which would probably be considered the "blotched form" of C/L. I have both forms growing on the same plant that either came out of Halgrims yard or the Edison museum. Very rare to see this.

    Jeff,

    Use your imagination. It's a CL in distress. I've got a 3 gallon purchased from Johnny Shelton at the USF sale years ago. It looked great before the 2010 freeze and is now still struggling to regain it's pre freeze form. It looks just like the pictured Leota with small leaves. I never said the plant in the photo was a good looking Lindbergh.

    Small plant but it is Davis Compacta from one of the guys with the J. S. name.

    Lol.... I guess there could be a .00000000001 % it could. But look at the WIKI pic. Anyway, I hope it turns out to be one. Ron, if it's in a pot, you could bring it by and I'll have a look at it if you want. Maybe tonight!

    Marie relayed to me tonight that she got Leota from a past President of the Society. Having seen Jeff's Col. Lindbergh, this plant does not have as large of leaves. My plant has been in the ground for three years so I don't think the leaves are gonna get much larger. As the young folks say - "it is what it is" :D

    As the most interesting man in the world might say, "growing conditions my friend, growing conditions.":cool:

    If it came from the west coast, and Harold Lee and Scott Dozier both lived on this coast, "Leota" could be suffering the from the same malady as my Col Lindbergh: Smallleafpostfreezeitis.

    Ana - here is the Excellent you wanted me to post a photo of. Its in heavy shade, so the leaves are stretched and quite large. Unfortunately where it is positioned it does not photograph well. It looks much better in person.
