    Here's a green and yellow that we found in Hawaii. Anyone recognize it?

    Marie, I do not recognize it, but it looks like a great Croton to have.

    Looks a lot like an unknown green and yellow I purchased from a non-descript nursery on Flamingo Rd a few years ago. Would take some pics but it's raining now - 2" so far!

    ...and to add to the merriment and confusion here's some pics of un-named green and yellows in the yard here. A few have been offered at some recent meetings. The one that is similar to Eleanor Fischer is a prolific seedling producer.

    Toby,
    I hadn't considered that but Yellow Columbiana is a real possibility. They grow Columbiana where we got it and the leaf shape is right. Leaf size is not the same but the plant is still small. Good eye!

    Phil number seven looks very close to Delaware in Dr. Browns book. Look at page 46. Let me know what you think.
