Default iholene red?????

Please take a look at the pictures I just posted.

I bought this one at Home Depot and I assume it is Iholene red. Am I correct?

I think it is a dwarf red. I have a Iholene red and the pstem is green with a hint of red on the underside of the leafs. I also have a d. red and it looks very close to the one in your picture.

It looks more like 'Tall Red'. The Iholenas have a very distinct coppery/red leaf underside and not so much red in the pseudostem and petioles.

I better go with tall red, considering the size and it is just July.

Now how do I edit the text with the pictures in my gallery?????

Easy. The line in your photo in your gallery just above "delete" has an "edit " function. Click it and you're off!
