Can You Identify this Plant?

Last week, we girls and one bouncy babe hit four rummage/antique shops. I'm still cross-eyed. If I never see an antique again that'll be...aw, who am I kidding? I'll be back out next weekend.

At one of them, the proprietor had two gorgeous plants, a dying Aloe Vera plant (which I will try to revive) and this one. I asked about them, since they seemed to be included among the furniture for sale. He said he was "trying to give them away."

Do any of my readers know what this one is called?


I'm a long time gone from high school horticulture class.

I don't know, but I hope so. I'm looking it up right now!

The leaves look different. Take a look at this photo. Are there different varieties?

Somebody else has suggested that it is an umbrella tree.

Any other experts out there?

There must be different varieties. The one I have doesn't have this mixed coloring - it's all the same color of green.

Belinda--you're an angel. Do you have a picture of your plant so I can compare.

Actually, I don't - when I changed offices awhile back, I hated to ask someone to help me bring in my stuff so quick in the game so I left it in the car. It didn't fare so well. My posting should've said "the one I HAD."
