    David has posted photos of his named croton, Ashley King, in the past. It is a beautiful croton that he has shared and is even selling now. It has a great history. I am hoping he will post a photo in this thread so all of you can take a look at it and tell us if it is different from other named crotons and deserves a spot in the wiki. Come on, David, show us a pic of that cutie.

    All your air layers look great, Mike. Still waiting for a great pic of the mother plant from David, though. Mike, if you could, it would be great to have one of your mother plant also.

    002.JPG 004.JPG Todays pic Ashley King Ive done 6 airlayers from her time to rest a while and repot her . If you read the original story it was planted in just peat moss and oak leaves , I beleive it was post 69 under the old oak tree . I beleive the peat and leaves have almost washed out .
