    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I'm hoping you can help me compile a list of everything hybridized by Al and Connie Cutler. I've been able to come up with a few and I'm not even sure they're all right. This is what I have so far.

    Cutler's gulfstream
    Connie cutler
    Captain gilbert Cutler
    Cutler no. 34
    Cutler no. 7
    Cutler's giant
    Elizabeth Cutler
    Luther Burbank
    Sibyl Griffen
    Bravo
    Mrs Collete
    Dr. fairchild
    Dr. stannus
    Commotion

    Please correct me if I'm mistaken, I'm coming up with this list little by little through internet searching and can't seem to find one master list.

    Quite a list! I would be interested in what Kurt just asked about your ties to the Cutler family also. The Magnificent croton was a plant found over in Indonesia by B. Frank Brown and was apparently the gentleman's seedling. B. Frank then named it.

    Al (Alvin) Cutler was my grandfather and I would love to be able to preserve as much as I can of his legacy. I appreciate you helping me with my list. I'm so excited to have found this forum. I'm hoping to grow some of his plants in my yard here in Florida and I'm sure I'll need guidance. :)

    I posted on the Wiki q/a. I think Ms Smith shined light on a problem we should try to fix. Written list in the wiki would be nice. Those of us who are challenged in the memory department get tired of diggin in the old paper work. Jus sa n image.jpg image.jpg Gilbert & Connie
