I don't normally like to grow NOIDs but saw this one that the seller found at a yard sale and really like it, so ordered a couple small ones. I thought it was going to be more rust from the eBay photo, but still like it. It is purple, magenta and green with a very ruffled edge. Does it ring a bell with anyone.? Just arrived in the mail a few minutes ago and looks perfect..Thumb of 2013-04-29/stilldew/a99671

Lavender lace is close, but I don't think the edge is just right. I don't think it's one of the under sea ones just because the seller said he'd grown it for a long time after getting it at a yerd sale, but thanks for your efforts. I'll get more photos after it's been outside and grown for awhile.

It looks to me like Norris. Rosy Dawn carries it.

And work a little louder
Shoot less with more care
And sing a little sweeter
And love a little longer
And soon you will be there.

I found some information that Norris is also called Chocolate Bear Paw and Big Foot. The photos of it in the database really do match.
