    I had the great pleasure to tour the Audobon House garden with some of the the International Palm Society members on the Keys portion of the 2014 biennial. Tim has done a masterful job of integrating crotons in with the gardens's rare palm collection. I can't wait to see this in a few years.

    With the Keys advantage, these are going to be awesome in a few years.

    I knew Randy could do my crotons justice with his pics, a big thank you Randy. The IPS biennial tour was a real treat for me, and I got to meet a bunch of new folks who really love plants, particularly palms. Thank you Jeff Searle for making this event possible. Lamar, I know how difficult it can be to travel down here. I was thinking of how hard it would be to get a group of the croton heads here for a tour and auction sometime in the future. As far as the cultivars go, some are easy to ID, some not, but I'll post all of the names.

    Looking great, Tim! Everything is growing so fast and looks so healthy. That Bob Bullock, Shady Lane and the Bimbo are amazing! You're doing a wonderful job at The Audubon House. I will definitely make it down there eventually. Randy, thanks again for posting all the great photos. Now all we need is to see your incredible garden. Hey Tim, thanks so much for the names!!!

    Tim, had to look again for the tenth time. The colors on that Father's Day, Geisha Girl, Shady Lane and several others is outstanding! Hey, in post #4, what's the one next to the Exotica?

    Anna, Ron, that would be Cutler #34. Remember, Randy takes exceptional photos of plants, so that helps to show off the truel potential of the plant. Thank you for the compliment though.

    Thanks, Tim. Yes, I know Randy's photos are primo. I was at his place recently and really, really wanted to take photos, but who am I kidding. I was embarassed to even think that. I wish he would post photos of his own garden soon!
