Definitely not 'Commander Hay'.
Do you know where yours came from?
I tried several times from different sources, and each time got an incorrect semp. The photos Calif_Sue posted are the only ones that look correct, plus the one I added of a late fall photo by Fernwood.
Kevin has been helping me sort through this one.

Not sure where this came from. Maybe a local nursery. I believe you but why is this one wrong? What are we looking for

Form and coloring. Should not show prominent cilia lining leaves. Smooth shiny leaves, no velvet or fuzzyness.

I finally gave up on trying to acquire the correct one. Shrug!

So is it alright with you if I remove your incorrect photos?
