    Before I try to download to wiki I would like identification on this croton. Marie thinks it's America but it doesn't look like the one she has, to me anyway. It does appear similar to the picture in the wiki though.

    Nice one, whatever it is...
    Is that the one that lost most of it's leaves after the nearby tree was removed?

    Oh. When it's well grown it's one of our favorite crotons. Chris

    Yeah that's the one. It seems to be coming back some. The other pictures I just took today of the one in the back yard.

    Chris - This looks like it could be America. I have only seen a nice one that Marie Nock is growing a few times. It is still just the beginning of the growing season. Marie, do you think this one looks like your America?

    Or maybe Rapture? :rolleyes:
