    Angela, Can you post a pic of Hilo Boy? I have Hawiian Boy, but I believe these 2 may be the same. Red Bull looks diffrent from my Hawiian Boy in a side by side. The Red Bull is more of a red brown with a upright leaf.

    Hilo Boy has absolutely no green at any stage....
    I have never bought Hilo Boy personally but I have seen it enough at the store to recognize it. It is the most popular red leaf ti here on the Big Island. (and probably Hawaii in general) The first one was a cutting from what I thought was Hilo Boy but it has been so sickly that the leaves have always been curled. The other pics are of what looks exactly like what is sold as Hilo Boy... a kitty for scale. They are so tall that I can't get a very good shot. In the last two pics you can see some of them peering out. The last pic is taken from the loft window (2nd story). The two in the front are Peter Buck.

    I have no idea what these two are. But they are definitely different with their upright leaves. And their color is much darker.

    I got a cutting of Earthquake about a year ago and I guess it is about time to give up on it.

    The first one an Earthquake cutting... it has been like that for a year. The second one I can't remember if it is my other cutting of Earthquake or not. Even the plant I got the cutting from was half dead... I think they are hard to grow in cooler temps... and when I say cooler temps I mean around 70˚

    Yeah the numerous typos are amusing.... Dean has the same book. It is a very interesting book on the history etc. Many tis in the photos aren't even named in the book and he mentions that a lot of varieties end up having regional names. At least you can reference the tried and true names of the standard ones.

    Here is a shot of what we have here in my part of the world as Kiwi. Kiwi is one of my top favorites and I have 6 group plantings in many light conditions. I have never seen Kiwi with that much pink. The leaf shape looks to be a little diffrent also. That looks 100% better than what we have. :cool:

    I have had this Ti growing in the garden for a few years now purchased as Glauca. I have kept a name label with Glauca for this plant for years. I do know that the name is not Glauca and have tried to find its real name. Ant ideas? I am stumped. The last pic looks white in the sun, but the color is really almost a gold pinkish tone.

    Loved this thread. I never thought there were so many varieties. Either I see them and cannot tell the differences, or there aren't many varieties here. Thanks, it's a pleasure to see all these beauties.
