Hi,

I managed to leave the nursery without a tag or checking the name on this one. I'm thinking that it may be 'Indian Summer'. Opinions?

Thanks much! Green Grin!

It could be. Are the leaves solid reddish on the back?

I think you may be right on it being Indian Summer! I have one myself that is unnamed and looks a lot like your picture. I'll show y'all mine sometime this weekend

Yes, the stems and the backs of the leaves are a reddish-purple color. Smiling

That fits with Indian Summer. It's quite schizo, depending on exposure. I've put a ton of pics of that in the DB here.
