    I need a couple of IDs please. Picked these up today. One was labeled petra in a 4" pot but it's throwing huge new oak type leaves. The second did not have a label. I'm pretty sure I've had this one before but lost it last winter. I am so bad with these things LOL

    # 2 is Lillian Stoffregen (very Fishbone-like but smaller, more pointed leaves). Did you get that one from me?

    #2 was bought at Sunscape nursery. I had recorded all the named crotons I had gotten from you and Phil. Lillian Stoffegen is a totally new name for me. Nice looking plant for sure!

    The first one is very young and would be difficult to ID. One of the latest leaves developing looks like it could be an Angel Wing.Only time will tell! :rolleyes:

    Those 4" pots were from angel exotics and on their site, these match nothing but possibly what they call 'Florida' I assume that's some bogus name from them.
    I would have passed on them but the huge new leaf sparked my interest as it obviously was not Petra as labeled. I'll follow-up in a couple years on it
