Jim McClements - as it happens, I called Bill Dress this afternoon to
ask about this plant. As you said, it doesn't sound exactly stunning;
he described it as having yellow shading around the main leaf veins,
and not very pronounced at that. Sounds a bit chlorotic, really.
I'll try to get to Ithaca (only 2 hrs) to see it when it leafs out,
and will take some pictures if I do.
