Hi All,

While rummaging through a Mom and Pop nursery, I ran into this beautiful cane and snatched it up. Not sure what variety it is but by looking online it appears to be a "Fanny Moser". The spots are raised giving the very crinkled leaves an interesting texture. What say all?? I am thrilled regardless....thanks Joe.

Just to add...I was always wanting a Good N Plenty and ordered one but it just did not seem to have vigor in its breeding...this kind of looked like it and that is what caught my eye....Joe

I think it may be 'Fannie Moser'.

It is 'Little Miss Mummey', a hybrid created by Brad Thompson of California. There is/was a wholesale grower distributing it as 'Fanny Moser', which is not a correct name. This was also on eBay. Grows to about 3-4', plump flowers white and pink.

Thanks all for your replies. I am happy to have it, as I said previously I really wanted a beautiful Good N Plenty but my plant did not seem to have any vigor and after languishing for a summer...a snail got it.
