    I haven't posted in quite awhile, so thought I'd photo just a few of what is growing in the backyard jungle. I'm running out of sun!! If there are some that I've misidentified, please make the correction.;)

    Hi Rick, your croton Easter looks very very similar to White Veitchii. Your plant is absolutely beautiful.

    White Veitchii, thanks Jose...no one even had a clue until now. Does White Veitchii have red petioles?

    Rick - not sure if it has red petioles. I may recall that Phil said that Albicans is actually a White Veitchii.

    Thanks for posting photos of your fabulous plants.

    I was just looking at my plant and looking at your picture, your leaves are a bit longer . Something that I did not notice is that if it has a red petiole then it is not a White Veitchii.

    Rick, so happy to see you post photos of your amazing plants!!! Your photos are great, too, showing the great characteristics of each. What a treat this morning. I wish you'd hang around here more. How about a tour at your place? I've never seen it. I think Mike is looking for a candidate. Mike have you found one? What about Rick? It's been a few years.

    Rick, getting to your plants. So many I want to comment on. That cotton candy just makes one smile. Great delicate polka dots. Captain Gilbert Cutler took my breath away. What a stellar example of a cultivar- and it's grown so beautifully! Also, I've never seen better coloration on a Madam Butterfly. The pink is scrumptious. The Rubens is gorgeous too and the Royal Flush is more than awesome! I've been waiting for someone to post theirs and this fits the verbal descriptions I've been getting, so thanks. Oh, so many!

    About the id's. I think 21 and 41 are the same and to me they look like Sturrock's pink Veitchii. Look in the wiki and see what you think. Also, 44 resembles a new one I got at the last extravaganza called Class Act. Lamar's is in the wiki, so check it out and see.

    Hey, thanks so much for posting. I know it was work, but well appreciated by us.:D

    Thanks Anna! I've hosted a few meetings/tours here. At one, I think about 60 people were here. I'm always up for hosting but I think most have been here and are eager to see others. If you're nearby, you're always welcome. Leave your clippers at home!

    Me too Randy! Don't know if I should hug him or punch him. LOL :D

    I guess hugging him since he has those massive python arms. :)
