Subject: [pfaf] Plant idenfication...
Hello--I am new to the group, but have been a fan of the website. I live in the highlands of Panama (about 1500 meters high in a cloud forest ecology), grow organic coffee, and medicinal herbs from which I make tinctures and salves.
I recently bought a plant at a local nursery, where the woman told me it was myrrh. When crushed, the leaf gives off the scent of myrrh, though lightly. The leaf has very little flavor. It looks nothing like the images of myrrh I have found on the
web. It is low growing, with a green and white variegated leaf (green center, white serrated border) about 1.5 inches at the widest part across. Leaf and stem are slightly furry.
Any ideas what this might be? It is lovely and growing well.
