Is this Tropical Storm?

I don't think so. Mine had smoother rounder leaves w/o those wavy edges. I had it for 3 years then it disappeared.

No. Here is Tropical Storm with Rainforest Sunrise. It's a slow grower for me.

Mine disappeared......anecdotally seems like a common occurance for this one unfortunately.

Sport of Rainforest Sunrise which is a sport of Maui Buttercups

Pic of MB in early June with a bit of sporting.

Paul - I really love what your MB is doing - so beautiful! I'd be separating that one out if I were you.

I agree with mikgag - definitely too heathy looking. It reminds me of Golden Tiara - have you seen it flower yet?

Mine also failed to make it through the winter. The solid-colored piece separated from it is still alive, though. : I

EDIT: Mikgag, I just noticed your post; I'm LMAO right now...

It's funny 'cause it's true!!

Could it be Wide Brim. That was one of the other ones I bought and can't find it in the garden.

Reminds me a lot of my Snow Boy

but your seems to have a bit more of a ripple to the edge. Do you know where you got it from? That will help a lot with the I.D.

You know, ?I just realized.... Hey, my Rainforest Sunrise number one died over the winter, and so did Maui Buttercups. Wow. Duhhh, I just made a connection. I replaced Maui Buttercups, but can live with only one RF Sunrise.

I think the picture above looks like my Golden Tiara too.No scale to judge by, but it looks small.
