    At least that's what I've been calling it for 8 years. Taken from a huge Croton in the alleys near Broward Hospital (from Crotonmania's website.) Enormous leaves, some over 12" long. This one gets around 3 hours of sun at midday.

    Ricky - there is no photo. Could you please re-post a photo? This cultivar has been mentioned often on this forum. Does it have a large leaf? What is the optimum sun/shading for this cultivar. Is this a fast growing cultivar?

    I tracked it down. As stated in another thread, it would be nice to have the photos remain in both places.

    Dean - this would be a good feature for this forum. :confused:
