    Randy, your stuff looks great. Very curious as to what #2 and #8 are in post #1. Is that Monarch in #3?

    Thanks, Randy! That John Criswick is unreal. The pinks are so soft. I also absolutely love the nuances of color on the Rudy B., the Waterfall and #3. Just outstanding. Please post more!

    Good eye Ana.
    The 4th, I don't know. It has an unusual leaf shape & color though. The 5th is Pop's Yard in more sun.

    Thanks Ron, I found the tag. "Dreer Hybrid"

    Ana, Your ID skills sure have improved.

    Randy - how is your Unknown Frank Brown #22 doing? The other air layer I made did not make it. The mother plant is some what shaded. Curious to see how yours has colored up? ;)

    Holy crap that thing is beautiful. When the rooted sticks got handed out by Jeff, he did his best to distribute them equally amongst those who went to see Dr. Brown that day. Truthfully, we had no idea what anything was. I must have lucked out because I've seen Jeff, Judy and Chris' plants - and none of theirs looked like that.

    Next question - any body recognize what it is ? BangHead

    Randy it is a dead ringer for the plant I got from Cleo that has been ID as Connie Cutler. Not a great picture to much sun to show the top of my plant. image.jpg

    1. Here's a close up of the new growth. Like mother, like son.:) DSC_0060.JPG
    Lamar, I see similarities, butI don't think they're the same though.

    We have no historical name at this time David. This was taken as a nearly dead stick from Frank Brown's garden after the very cold days of the 2010 winter. Its current reference is Unknown from Frank Brown's Garden #22. Bob Alonso is very familiar with the cultivars of Dr. Brown's garden, however he has not seen this plant for an ID as of yet.
