    Hawaiians call this one Bermuda Red. It may be Baron Rothchild but I'm not sure. What do you think?

    The leaf shape appears the same as Baron Rothschild. However, that coloring is amazing - that has some real hot pink going on there!!! :eek:

    The leaf shape is identical to Voncilla Rothschild or Baron James de Barley.

    Bermuda Red looks remarkably like Baron Rothschild. I've had a Hawaiian collected croton for many years that I've been calling Baron Rothschild. Perhaps it is this other cultivar. Does anyone know where this name originated?

    Hi: just hangin on the side and chose to add this pic and place a name tag on my plant,does it pass the Baron/Burmuda Red test. As you can see new growth on the right side but it seems to color up as it matures. TKS

    Lamar,

    I'd say your plant resembles Gloriosa. The leaf is thicker and a bit more round.

    Thanks Ray, I checked on the web encyclopedia and a perfect match. Only several dozen more...

    Has a consensus been reached that Bermuda Red is the same as Baron Rothschild?

    I reside on the naysayer side. They are distinct in my opinion. Bermuda Red is a much faster grower than Baron Rothschild for one, at least that has been my experience. Also have noticed that Bermuda Red prefers a sunny aspect that looses a lot of color when shaded. Baron Rothschild maintains it colors in all but deep, deep heavy shade. :confused:
