    I believe some of these, if not all originated from Marie. These were found last year at a nursery in full sun, covered in scale, burnt & barely alive. They were cheap & looked like they had potential. I nursed them back to health & found one of Marie's Ree Gardens Tag buried in one of the pots.:rolleyes: Here are a few. Any ideas:confused: Mmmmmmm......

    The first one is probably Bimbo, but I'm stumped on the others. Here are 2 photos of each.

    Randy,
    I think you may have gotten the cuttings I rooted for our friend that came up from Grenada. I'm not positive but I think the second one in the second group could be John Criswick. I posted a picture in one of the threads that Rags started. If so, it's a winner! I have a long wait list on my one plant. Next time you're here, I'll show you the plant.

    Randy and Marie,

    That's the plant I tried to buy at Jesse Durko's that had Marie's tag which read John Criswick. Unfortunately, they did not let me buy it. I was so sad because it is a stunner!!! I'm pretty sure it's the same one. Looks exactly like the one I carried around for a while like a little baby.

    Randy, take this with a grain of salt, but could the last one be a mosaic not yet pinking up?

    Ana:eek:

    Thanks Marie,
    I think I remember buying most of these at the same time. I'll look for a pic, but these were pretty beat up.


    Ana,
    Yeah, A lot of nurseries have "personal" plants & generally aren't for sale.:rolleyes: These were over in full sun where all the landscape plants are. I think we've all carried around a prize found at a nursery, only to be later disappointed.

    I was thinking along the lines of Stain Glass for the last one. Mosaic has a broader leaf but similar color. Keep guessing, thats how I'm learning.

    Randy,
    I know I gave him a Stained Glass - it may have been at the same time as the others. The leaf shape on yours is right.

    Marie, When they're large enough, I'll make some "copies" for Jesse.;)
