    Graveyard Red (FL) not to be confused with the Cemetery Red Cordyline.

    Do not know what went wrong here, but this is a cutting I rooted from my Pink Floyd last summer. No color to this now.:mad:

    Ron, I do not believe it is ready to meet The Piper at the Gates of Dawn :D Here is a shot of the mother stem that I did not cut. The cut stem also has no color, but this is a very slow grower so I will not Meddle.

    The Black Ti garden planting area is planted. Shared the Crotons (left the black 2) with friends as they were repeats of Crotons I had elsewhere in the garden. Hope for some good growth over the Summer on these Ti.

    The colorful Camroon (3') left the others two (12") in the group behind.

    Update on the large leaf sport that appeared on the White Baby Doll (Ballerina). I do not grow the John Klass Cordyline, but it looks like this sport may be the J. Klass. What do you think? BTW I have learned no sun at all for this one.

    This certainly looks like John Klass. Apparently this mutation from White Baby Doll occurs frequently as mutations go.

    Thanks! I will tag it as John Klass. I am going to focus on my jungle Ti garden now. I have been putting it off, but this will be my new project over the next few months. I was able to add a few Ti this weekend. Here is a sneak peek at the southern left entrance to the Ti jungle.

    Scott - it's good to see the collection is still growing - you have some real gems there. I'll get my camera out and add a few photos to this thread. Thanks for keeping it going.

    Dean, I can't stop collecting these gems. I already have my list of new cuttings to get this spring and still growing from seed. Here is another seedling I am pleased with....

    Here you go Scott. Have you seen this one before? It is definitely in my top 5 - but the two I have in the ground may be the slowest ones I have.

    Dean, McIrney Spear is a favorite of mine also. McIrney Spear is one of the few I let set seed last fall and look forward to seeing the offspring. Thanks for the great photo Dean.

    Scott - Hard to tell from photos, but I don't think that one is McInery's Spear as this one is labeled on a Florida website.
    McInery's Spear.jpg

    It is closer to New Guinea Augusta, or just plain New Guinea, as seen here. This one was labeled as just "New Guinea" when Angela bought it (not New Guinea Black, but close to the same form.)
    . new-guinea.jpg
    It is in the ground close to three years and not even three feet - from almost 1 foot when bought. Others are head high in the same time frame. I've been hoping to propagate it, but it is not prolific enough to get any cuttings yet.

    I'll take another photo from a side view, so you can see the more upright habit that didn't show well from the overhead shot.

    Dean, I took a good look at my McIrney's Spear today and your plant is not McIrney's Spear. (1st photo plant grows in full sun)

    Welcome TigerLily! Do you grow Bryan's Diamond? I have one named Byron's Diamond but it looks different than the photo posted by Dean. Would love to see a photo of Bryan's Diamond. Here is my Byron's Diamond...

    That is a very nice looking Ti Angela. Here are a few of my from seed plants planted in ground this weekend. These replaced the formal looking boxwoods on the east side of my garage.

    Cut back and only let 6 select Ti that had not seeded before set seed last fall. Harvest has started on these as they have started to ripen in the last few weeks.
