Tad,

  Here's a few more id's for you.

#56....Schubertii

#63.....Rising Sun (a very nice one !)

#78....Purple Prince

#94....Eburnum (croton)

Nice tour so far. Just a thought, maybe your dad could jump in and give us all a little piece of history about himself and how he got started. (And....the troubles with raising you as a child.. :D ) Thanks,

Jeff

Robbin, the royals are a chancy grow for us as well, they are quite likely to freeze, but they have become uber popular so we take the chance.

You did better than I would.  The thought of military discipline still send chills down my spine.  When I was a kid, MMA was just one step behind being threatened with an extended trip to GATESVILLE!
