    Amazing cultivars, Ron. Love all of them. Wish I knew all the names, though.

    Ana - I knew this thread would torture you. Honestly I don't know what the majority of them are. I believe many are cultivars we are familiar but the exceptional robust color is somewhat deceiving.

    Yeah, I knew you knew you were torturing me. I need to learn, so I'm always looking for identified photos/plants in yards. I think you know some of them. Let me try a few, and you tell me if I get any right.

    1) ?
    2) Trinidad Interrupted Leaf
    3) Resembles Mackenzie, but I can't see enough of the leaf pattern or scale
    4) Daybreak
    5) Dolores
    6) Tommy Halgrim
    7) ?
    8) ? but really spectacular
    10) Feel like I know this, but blanking out
    11) Joe Friday
    14) Really is amazing! Is it Mike's amazing cultivar we saw at the tour?
    15) ? President Reagan

    Don't recall how big these leaves were, Captain Gilbert Cutler or Thomas Edison, I'm leaning towards the later.

    Moose - lots of these small Thai like crotons look pretty much the same when small like the one in the photo. ...and rarely does one see a larger one ( 2 ft tall or higher).

    Clueless on this one. Bright sun was kissing it so the colors in the photo are not the same that were hitting the naked eye, which were even more spectacular.

    This may be a Jungle Queen in the process of coloring up. I could be wrong.
