I have had this for at least 15 years, moved it with me from a Z1 to a Z8 and it still thrives ( and I am happy, it makes me smile Smiling ) But, I am often asked "What is it?" To which I generally reply "pretty" ( admittedly, not 'helpful' to most people ;) )

Thanks Lin for letting me know about the name change. I have a hard time keeping up with all of them. Confused Whistling

Seems like somebody doesn't have enough to do so they have fun trying to confuse us by changing the names of plants. Rolling my eyes. :lol:
