    This one is growing on me after planting in the ground this year. This seedling is green on the leaf topside, but the upright narrow leaf shows the underside leaf color.

    I agree - and from what I can see, that is a nice deep green as well.

    Dean, You see right as it is a deep green. I checked the records I have for this one and it is from Kiwi.

    It's always a thrill when a seedling finally colors up.

    I might have to dig up some patience somewhere and start sprouting some seedlings of my own. :gangnamstyle:

    Patience is required but well worth it. Here is one that sprouted from seed near one of the Kiwi. This one has a lavender/pinkish leaf stem on a green and yellow leaf. Do not know if you can see it in the photo but the leaf has a fine red edge.

    Dean, Here is another seedling that had spent the first 2 years of its life as a black leaf Ti. Reminds me of a Dr Brown Cordyline.

    A nice looking "flop" IMO. Pin-stripe edging.... everything doesn't have to be knock-out patterns and colors. Something can be said for the subdued chic. :FastGrow

    Dean, I was using the word "flop" more as a leaf description. I also like the look of the plant overall. Img_5536.jpg

    I guess I will refer to that one as Floppy Chic in the future.

    Thanks Ken, but I will set the record straight. Not all look great as a great number of seedlings are not photo worthy. The funny thing that I have noticed is that a lot of the seedlings that had shown color when very small ended up not much to look at a couple years later. What I need to do now is start throwing out the no thrill looking plants. I just keep giving them one more chance and every now and then I see a sign of potential.

    This is a seedling from Xerox that is now 3 yrs old. This one stands at 7" tall with 3.5" x 1" leaves. This one looks like the one in Frank Browns book "Inhoshinezu" pg 58 bottom left. If you have the book check it out and give your thoughts. Img_6629.jpg

    I think you need a name change to - Cordyline King.

    If I do, you will have to use that to log in. So let me know you have read this, and then next time your login is rejected you will have to use ScotTi from then on.
