    Wow. No at all red or orange. Yes, wrong tag for sure. It is a beauty. I bet someone can help you ID it. Maybe Hoa will know what it is or might be.

    Cheers,

    That looks closer, the Siam Jade has larger more ruffled petals then yours . Man I hate that. I got a plant not long ago supposed to be a skinneri alba it was in bud . it is a mossiae a unifoliate leaf not a bifolate like the skinneri . The seller sent another scrappy plant won't buy from him again . Gin
