    I bought this one last year as 'Excellent' but I think it was ID'd here as something else, maybe 'Gloriosum Superbum'?

    I have seen pics on the internet of similar plants labeled as 'Excellent'...
    Are these two varieties the same thing?

    Well, the wiki pic of AFD #5 is something different, as are most of the google images for AFD #5....

    BTW the big leaf in my second photo is about a foot long without the petiole.
