I have this labeled as 'Christa'. That's how I bought it so think that's correct since it came from a reputable nursery. What do ya'll think?

The compact shape of the plant and the leaf shape seem correct and I see a slight silvering of the leaves. The question comes down to the color. Mine is never that color it looks like the small reddish leaf on the bottom of yours to a peach-orange color , mine gets a lot of sunshine. Are the underside of leaves red toned and does it ever get more of the peach-orange color ? I'm thinking that it is but I'm not sure.

Thanks, Bob. I'll check on that. Mine gets morning sun and afternoon it is completely shaded.
