    David, Randy & Ana -

    Thank you for all your kind words.

    Ana - you want names? The Wiki Queen has spoken ... :rolleyes:

    Crysophyllum.JPG
    Crysophyllum also from Jeff Seale. Its all in the eye of the beholder. This one caught Craig Morell's eye from Pinecrest Gardens. He is coming to get cuttings for the Garden's mist house for a future new addition.

    Yellow Duncan Macaw.JPG
    This came from Jeff as Yellow Duncan Macaw. Its definitely faster than a typical Duncan Macaw. Could use some more sun expose. It had a perfect location but the palm near it has responded to all the loving the crotons get, so it is in more shade now.

    The middle croton is Dr. Alix from Frank Brown's garden. To the left is Bogoriensis from Keith Hanks as a little rooted cutting several years ago. The far right is the Scarecrow.

    Since its still raining, The Wiki Queen has spoken ... :rolleyes:

    Richard Krukonis.JPG
    From Marie Nock as Irresistible. To me it resembles the Richard Krukonis seen in Frank Brown's book more than any other version I've seen. What do you think ?

    Still raining, eating left over 4th of July BBQ Chicken, might as well provide more names for Ana.

    Delores.JPG
    Delores also from Marie Nock. This is a Richard Button introduction.
