'Feldmaier' is a good one. Interesting colors and very stout leaves and rosettes.
Here's mine in Spring and in Fall today.

Nice photos Tim. Shows just how tough 'Feldmaier' really is with our tough rainy season, then into a long drought season.

The Fall coloring on yours is much better than the Spring color, Tim. What color is that? It is indescribable... Confused

I prefer the Spring color. Nothing else looks quite like it but there are many that look very similar to the Fall Feldmaier.
