    BTW: I had a daughter in Loveland, CO and we almost retired there instead of Hawaii.
    It was I that said that! And believe it or not, for a non-tropical location, we have a very nice climate here east of the Rockies in Colorado (not necessarily too far east though).

    Nicely done! I think the name is 'Dixie Hummingbird', though.

    Should have been Lc. Mary Ellen Carter 'Dixie Hummingbird', but the handwritten label left out the Dixie part.

    I thought maybe there were two types as in Toshie Aoki Pizzaz or Toshie Aoki Starburst, they both look similar though Pizzaz has more pronounced stripes in the petals. Sellers mix these up a lot too.

    Thanks for the correction.
