    The cultivars that are available have every hue in the rainbow except blue. What would you pay for a croton with striations of blue in it? :)

    I bought this as "BluDaze" at Home Depot awhile ago. Do you want some cuttings?

    Dean, there's no real blue in BluDaze. Let's try a second Photoshop iteration.

    When the blue comes about, maybe from a sport off a Tamara or Eburnum someday.

    If we call a palm with this color (outlined) in pic blue, why not a Croton?

    Looks sky blue to me. Also looks like a great plant to hybridize with.

    Dean, Maybe a hazy sky blue. But I do not think others agree.

    Moose, I have been using a ton of roundup for the upcoming meeting. I use a blue dye in the roundup up to help me know where I have sprayed. If you want a blue croton, let me know a few weeks before the meeting and you will have a truly blue croton....but you can't tell Judy...I would be "dead meat".
