might be 'Fortunei Auremarginata' or maybe 'montana 'Aureomarginata' (which I don't have). Strikes me that the leaves might be a bit too heart-shaped for the first. (then again, maybe not). Here's my FA.

It's hard to tell from the pic, but the margin on the noid also looks more chartreuse to me.

ViolaAnn - Thanks. But I think Eleven is right - the leaves are more chartreuse.

it's not a Montana... i have 2

the leaves in that image, are more heart shaped than my Fortunei's -- but mine are not that mature yet... ... those remind me more of a frances williams type leaves.
