    Have the same plant but called Yellow Charmer... Intensity of yellow/white will vary with light and cultural conditions.

    Never heard the Yellow Charmer name but it sure fits. Thankfully, no one called it Albicans (white Veitchii) which is a slightly different plant. Jeff Searle used to call this one Prince Phillip but that too is a different plant.

    Ray,
    I'm pretty confident this is NOT Yellow Charmer. It's not what I have labeled and I got it out of a yard with Bob Alonzo, and my plant looks like a Charmer, just yellow. As far as the pictures above, the color is showing green and white and then more a yellow and green. Just the lighting I guess. But it also doesn't look like Prince Phillip either. Too much yellow.

    It looks kinda similar to an unnamed cultivar I got from Phil a few years back.

    Moose's plant probably came from one of the first two . I can bring cutting if anyone interested; no air layers this year.
