Okay, how many of you want to go on a scavenger/name hunt?
This plant came with the name of heuffelii 'Hispedulum'. I can find no reference for it. It's definitely a heuffelii, and a lovely one at that.

Yes, I found that information also Peter.

I just did another search, and found two links for this plant. Both at ATP. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
So at least if someone else is looking for information on the name, they will come here and see what is posted. Thumbs up

Hurray!
Well Peter, I think we have thoroughly researched this one. It evidently is an incorrect name for this lovely heuffelii that will now become a NOID. Smiling

Lynn,

This looks similar to one that was just labelled "heuffelii #1" back in the "good old days". It was out of Sanford's collection that eventually was bought by Sandy MacPherson. It was not a very fast grower.

Looks a bit like my "Hot Lips" in about April just coming out of dormancy.

Nice, Marilyn. Great color and it looks like it came through winter in great shape. Lovey dubby

Yes it did. I had about 3 different plants of this plant which came through great.
And this one continues to survive but the others bloomed and died. So we will see if this one will last another year.
Thanks,

Lynn,

Helen named heuffelii #3 (not number 2 as I previously remembered) as 'Belcore'. It looks similar to that picture you sent and it stays that color and pattern year round. Could be your baby. When I'm in your yard next please point it out to me.

That plant should have been well-distributed and probably picked up some misnomers along the way.

When are you coming Kevin? Big Grin
I have Belcore, so I will plant this one right next to it and watch them. Then when you come we can do a comparison.
