    I purchased this croton from Carol Graff last October. It wasn't showing a ton of color when I got it, but it has really started to show its stuff. Fairly large leaves with some great pink in them. Doing very well in lower light. Carol told me that the person she got it from wanted to name it Carol Graff.

    An amazing pink, Tim. Can't wait to see this one grow up even more. To me, it resembles Mosaic, but leaf shape seems a bit rounder on this one. Thanks for showing us. How much light does it get?

    A winner there! Looks like a cross between a great Polychrome and a great Mosaic. Any ideas on the background???

    Phil, you would have to ask Carol about the history and background on this one. I was just lucky enough to get one.

    Nice find. It looks like a good shade candidate.

    Looks like it has a lot of affinities to Stain Glass

    Tim - how about an updated photo?

    With our weather, it should be cranking now.

    Would you say its on the slow side?

    Ron, I have found this not to be slow at all. The largest leaves presently are 13 to 15 inches. I put it into a 5 gal pot today to let it get a bit larger so that I can start to propagate it and get it out to others. CAM00571.jpg CAM00574.jpg CAM00572.jpg CAM00573.jpg
