My New Obovata

The mail came today and my obovata cutting was in it along with two carnosa cuttings! I'll post pictures of them later.

I looked at your obovata on photobucket and . . . are you sure that's an obovata?

Carolyn,

That's what the person I traded with said it was. The leaf is rather soft, not hard like a carnosa or pubicalyx. I've never had obovata so I don't know what kind of leaves they have. If it isn't obovata, I hope I can get a proper ID.

I would post the pic on here. H. obovata is hard and roundish. :) Start a new thread and post the pic . . .see what everyone says. I'm curious!

It IS beautiful, and it has 5 budding peduncles!

I agree, the other doesn't look like Obovata which I have grown & has such a distinctly round leaf shape.

The leaf shape of the other looks more like that of maybe Obscura to me, tho' seems large for that.
