HI

First, got this a bit back, labelled roseo-lineata.  I see a FCBS article re roseo-striata, and one called Red Lines, formerly roseo-lineata.  But it has more pronounced thicker lines.  Would you say mine is just a natural variation of Red Lines, or something different.

Second, this one was odd, got two weeks ago at club raffle, and did not notice the one leaf with the red line, only noticed today!  Is this pretty uncommon.  Too bad, looks like new leaves won't have it.

Mike, the finely speckled marmoration on your first one would rule out it being Rosea Striata (or any of the variant names for essentially the same thing).  Looks hybrid to me.  I seem to recall seeing a cv. in circulation under the formula name Bold Streak x macwilliamsii that looked something like that.  That could be what you've got, or it could be something else. 

The red streak on your second one is not an uncommon phenomenon.  I've seen that sort of thing come and go on a number of different cvs, although some do seem more prone to it than others.

Mike, this is labelled as the one Lisa mentioned, Bold Streak x macwilliamsii. As you can see it gets a very red flush on maturity. Blake Street Beauty is also very similar. Mine doesn't seem to get the splotches much but I have another unnamed, very similar Neo that does. Sorry that doesn't really help much.

Speaking of strange lines, I find this one a bit interesting. It was labelled Neo 'Ferris's Gold' but doesn't seem to be registered so I don't know what it's supposed to look like. The line seems to be coming through on the new foliage. Jen
