I would like to put this picture in the database
and need a more detailed name. I have trimmed
it back quite a bit and need to know the best way to
root the cuttings also.
Thanks for help,
LM

Hi Louise. Perhaps these links will help you find your cultivar. Sorry I couldn't give you a definite name.

Moonhowl, Thumbs up
Thanks very much for the links. I viewed each and have chosen the
variety as either 'Coral' or 'Alabama Sunset'. Also, the complete
cultivation including rooting is very helpful. I have pruned it heavily
before bringing it inside for winter and have many cuttings to attemptll
to root. I will try to save the last link to my computer so it will be handy
to access and not get lost. I frequently have difficulty finding a post
that I wanted to reread.

LM Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Louise, I am so pleased the info was useful to you. I thought maybe' Alabama Sunset', but wanted you to have a look for sure.


I tip my hat to you. Moon
