    Man, I really like that one...
    Very nice!
    BTW what are the differences from Petra...
    Broader leaves?
    Different color??
    Definitely one I would like to get...

    Between the two, it would have to be the color. There's very little or almost no yellow in Super Petra, where Petra is full of it. The shape and size of the leaf are more similar.

    Jeff, in Brown's book the Super Petras are full of yellow...
    but the leaves (in the book) appear broader, more truncate than regular Petra...

    Peyton,

    Your absolutely right. I sort of jumped the gun.:) And I must say, I really can't recall mine showing hardly any yellow ever.

    I like both versions, your red one and the yellow ones in the Book.
    I assume Super Petra is a sport from Petra...
    next fall I'll have to keep an eye out for sports when the thousands of Petras arrive in town at all the bigboxstores....
