    Hey everybody, was scanning the list of crotons for the sale and was curious about Go Reds..... anyone know any history on this....?... ....OR even a picture? Just curious if it was a new hybrid, or possibly a sport.
    GOSH THOSE PICS OF THE SALE MADE MY MOUTH WATER.... HEHEHE...

    This is a croton I named probably at least 10 years ago, and pretty certain it was a seedling that was found growing in another pot with a larger croton in it.

    Ahhh... thanks so much Jeff for the background..... it is always interesting to know the history of various plants... almost like the provenance of "collecting" fine antiques. Thanks again Jeff!

    Jeff named it as such since he is a closet communist. :(
