Hi

Ray's post in Plant Identification made me focus on one of mine, now quite curious.  
All the pics below were at the nursery I got mine from.  

This one is labelled "fulgens x ramosa".  It keeps this color even in shade,the purplish undersides dont recede in color.

Edit - I gather from doing some research that this is more likely fulgens v discolor x ramosa v festiva.  This is based on purple undersides of leaves and the orange yellow sepals?  Am I correct that these are the sepals that are two-toned.  I see that Smith and Downs say the sepals are red for festiva. 

This one reminded me of Ray's.  The tag says "ramosa fulgens" (no x sign) tho the seller said that was a mistake, it was A ramosa.  I didn't see one actually flowering.  For that matter, the color here may be due to the flowering - I don't seem to have pics of others at the seller, they may be greenish.  Mine is almost all green, tho it has been shaded.  Rather curious what you think it is.  Also a question of ignorance - are the orange organs referred to as berries?

For comparison, this is the "ramosa fulgens" when I got mine - the plant in upper right corner with darker leaves and purplish undersides is the "fulgens x ramosa.
