    Great pics!! A delight to see what well-grown crotons look like. Your tropical climate cetrtainly helps when compared to our semi-tropical central FL climate.

    Agreed, very pretty. I like the pavers. One of these days I'm gonna do my whole yard with pavers.

    Thanks Jerry! My wife just checked out this thread and now wants to know why our garden does not look like Bren & Jerry's? :eek:

    I couldn't agree more! But....I must admit, I'll be down there the first weekend of Febuary for my annual palm sale. I look forward to visiting both of these incredibly, beautiful gardens. I'll try to get some pictures.

    In my opinion...EXEMPLARY and WORTHY OF IMITATION. So many beautiful and well kept CROTON cultivars, gardening ideas and the tremendous effort invested are quite evident. All I can say is "SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS" and I second Palmisland's motion...WOW :)!!!

    Wow - combining palms and colorful crotons together in the landscape is such a winner. Stepping out on the veranda with that gorgeous tropical ambiance must be very soothing. :cool:

    I SOOO look forward to my visit this weekend. Good food and tropical drinks in hand, great host ( the Shillings and Glocks ), and two of the most beautiful collections of crotons in all of Florida. Now, if I can only sell a few palms at the same time, the trip will be complete. Lol!

    Jeff - Hopefully you will bring that new fangled camera you got for Christmas! :confused: The last time you posted a photo on this forum, Duncan Macaw and Johannis were a newly introduced cultivars. :(

    Da Moose :rolleyes:
