How many shades of green can we find in our heuffelii.


Just have to love the way 'Xanthoheuff' turns gold in the spring.






A seedling from 2013. It is green year round.

Hurray! Paul those are all wonderful examples of green heuffelii. Hurray!
'Perfection' is one of my favorites, and I love the texture of 'Randolph's velvety leaves.

Mine too! The color of 'Perfection' makes me think of pistachios and pistachio ice cream for some reason! Big Grin Here's a few others that are still small.

J. heuffelii 'Purple Haze'

I hope so... I acquired 'Sundancer' based on the strength of your photos, Lynn. Your 'Sundancer' seems to have spread laterally to fill up that hole, which I hope mine will also do. I think some of my Jovis will instead grow into a giant, tight, congested sphere requiring excavation and division.
