Try this one - Grenadine...http://www.rosydawngardens.com/grenadine-106.html

It's as close as I can come to yours.

Wow thanks for responding so fast. Don't think it's grenadine because it has that pink on the center vein part of the leaf, wine red toward the edges. Whatever it's is I can't remember if I pinched a sample at restaurant display or purchased it in a mix. Part of my collection that I over winter each year, they all share tithe characteristic of having pink and burgundy leaves rather than orange.

I have many without names, probably from seed or trades. Sometimes we just have to enjoy it without a name. Rough, I know!
