    I just snagged this on eBay. I was just wondering what it might be? Disraeli?

    If it's not Disraeli, then it's probably President Reagan.

    But could it be a Disraeli? I think I had one before (that didn't make it) and it looks similar from the photo. It's still on the way here so I don't have the plant in my possession yet to really check it.

    Too bad I am getting this new croton so late - my other crotons have really done well this summer and colored up nicely on my patio. I can keep them outside until mid-October here (in Delaware) but I know they adjust to transplanting better when the soil is warm so I hope this new plant arrives soon, while the daytime temps (and nights) are still warm.

    It looks like Irresistible to me.

    Marie - I believe you are correct. I just went out to the garden and took a look at all three. I'd go with Irresistible after a second look.

    Ron,

    I just love seeing photos of your garden. It just goes to show that climate is often merely a frame of mind. You have mastered tropical gardening.

    Ron,

    I agree with Ray's comments. Your setting of plants in Delaware, just can't be true. Everything is looking so nice. Thanks!

    I agree with Irresistabile.
