Leaves are more orange than species if grown in zone 9 or higher in full sun.

I'm kind of loosing my liking for blanchetiana since it doesn't do well in wind. We've only had a few mild blows from tropical systems and the blanchetianas that were not protected from the wind got all twisted up and had to be heavily pruned.
