So I know DVHS sold this to you, but this is a plant that I can't see why it got registered, let alone taken into TC by Q&Z. Just so they could sell something to Buckeyes?

It looks similar to something else but I cant remember what it is. I need to walk my garden and see - I know I've seen it before.

Found it - while looking at another topic I found the plant I was thinking of - Red Dog.
That's Red Dog peeking out between Mr Blue and Volcano Island.

While looking in my garden for similar looking plants, I found a few others. It turns out I already had one of these.

Top center is the original Scarlet and Gray and the bottom center is another Scarlet and Gray. Red Dog is on the left and aequinoctiinatha is on the right.

Some others with similar looks - I just wandered my garden looking for small rippled leaves and these popped out.

And a seedling I have around from Rick Goodenough's work:

But the leaf back is totally different with the Smokey heritage.
