No..not many in yards for sure. These Klahanie were part of that Craig Breedlove I think his name is? Who collected many of the Mexican cloud forest plants for the local bay area Botanical Gardens back in the 80's. This is probably a seed descendent of that era.

Bless Craig for doing so , Stan. Bay area is more interesting place for plants because of him.

Yes. In fact I have a Deppea splendens in my backyard. It was found by Craig from just one hillside in Mexico. That hillside was cleared and burned illegally for cattle or corn,something, years go.
Now none are found in the wild. But I have one!

Lucky you! I googled this story Stan and the name is Dr. Dennis Breedlove. So thank you Dennis for Stan's Deppea.
It's interesting and attractive plant. Looking forward to see blooms on your plant Stan.

Ha!, I got his name confused with the world famous driver of what was the fast "car" ever built. Jet powered. I was into cars as a kid. Models and magazines. Now? I love the car that never breaks down Toyotas. lol.
