    Not really a new one, its been in the ground for 45 days. Its another croton that was left in to much shade and had really greened out. When Mike Woolery gave me this croton he told me it needs good sun exposure to look its best. Waiting for the gentler late season sun, I planted it near my sidewalk on the south side of the Moose Land. Of course it slowly defoliated over several weeks from the sudden sun exposure. Flushing new leaves it should be nice and acclimated by the spring. There are some crotons that can do well in heavy sun if they are fed plenty of nitrogen and watered often until they are fully established like this Kane.
