'Kerplunk is an 'Kabitan' seedling from Herb Benedict. The story told is that it derives its name from the sound of this plant landing in a ravine where Benedict threw it in order to dispose of it. Evidently he rethought the issue. It is a medium sized plant with gold leaves which are much broader than those of 'Kabitan'.
