    Attached are pictures of some hybrids of a Hawaiian grower. Unfortunately he wouldn't part with any cuttings.

    I see what you mean Marie. They "are" very nice. The leaves are large too?

    Not large but not small. Probably medium.

    The middle one looks like Embassy. The right one has the Recurvifolium leaf color and shape but the spots throw it off.

    Embassy.jpg Here is what I have as Embassy.

    This cultivar was reportedly found by Kurt Decker growing at the Embassy Lakes development. Hence - the name. George Zammas related to me he was driving by the Momma plant, and it was about to get "bulldozed". They were doing some kind of work and the plant was in the way. I guess it is always easier to plow under then to transplant. George saved it and is now growing at his nursery. If you have an Embassy in your yard, you can thank Kurt.

    ...and another Embassy - smaller dots than the one from Hawaii. Lots of new yellow-green growth here
