    Mine is also labelled "Como" but was "Reticulatum Como" when I ordered it.
    Here it is fresh out of the nursery and completely different to everyone else's, lol.

    Very much so at the moment but I think that will change either as it opens or next year perhaps.

    Agreed, when young so many look alike.

    I'm so fascinated by the different colours of all the Comos in this thread even at the same time of year! Here's mine this morning, kind of treading the middle line between @D97x7 's vivid pink and @Acerholic 's lovely pale:

    Taking on some summer colours now, but those hints of pink still remain. This is a fun one!

    I've placed mine in the shade, it only gets some dappled sun for one hour in the evening, but I'll move it to a sunnier place soon...
