From the pictures that I have seen looks like LITTLE MENEHUNE is greener. Neither are as green as the pictures depict. Does anyone grow both to compare ?

For what it's worth LITTLE MENEHUNE was not hardy here. I have a new plant coming in the spring which I will pot and keep. If it blooms I'll let you know.

I have both in Zone 5b also. Neither are as green as pictures and Little Menehune didn't bloom this past year but I had accidently crushed it while working on my pond. I do have a very nice seedling out of Little Menehune and Bob Faulkners Psychedelicious that I crossed with 4 other mini's this past year. I wish I had a picture to post but I can't find one. Both seem to be slow growers with little bloom here but I will continue to use them when I can.

I got Little Mucha Minto last spring and got about 4 blooms from it. Hopefully it survives our winter. It's bloom was not as green as pictures have portrayed it.

I have both, and I'll leave it to you to decide. Unfortunately my camera is not good at close-ups, but I'll give two examples of each and hopefully they won't be very blurry. And I have not adjusted the colors at all in these pictures. I must say, though, that for the longest time I thought I had received another mini than LITTLE MUCHA MINTO because my blooms looked nothing like the hybridizer's picture -- but then Ashton wrote Floyd Cove about it and Karen Pierce confirmed his plant really is LITTLE MUCHA MINTO. And since then I've gotten a hint of a pattern on its blooms (second photo), but nothing like the patterns I've seen on pictures of LITTLE MUCHA MINTO from James and Lyle.

LITTLE MENEHUNE - Love this mini!

I agree with James, Littel Menehune was not hardy in south central Wisconsin. It was beautiful while it lasted though. ~ Jan
