    Now I thought the last one was a stoplight, but when I compared the photo to my stoplight it had me baffled, the difference was the patches of pigmentation on the leaves, so I made the trip back and got a cutting from the owner, let’s see how that turns out.

    The last one looks like Dayspring in very high light.

    The first photo has the rounded leaf reminiscent of Compte de Germiny and not Dayspring. The second and third appear like Daysrping.

    Ray,
    Here are photos of a similar but older plant. Does this help with an ID?

    Thanks

    Allen I really enjoy your post of your trips to the markets and the coast of Trinidad how about a picture of the market with Roti and curry. I think we found a new love in the southern Caribbean and a travel hot spot for vacations if we go we will visit your garden. Thanks Kip
