    I wanted to share a couple that I have. If you have croton variety that has blotched, share your pictures here.

    The first is a Blotched Thanksgiving and the second one is a Thea.

    That blotched Thanksgiving may be the finest of the blotched crotons.

    Blotched Elaine, Blotched Nestor, and some more of your Blotched Thanksgiving. Also, a full shot of the Thanksgiving. Coming up on 10 feet tall. Interesting, most of the blotching on this Croton were blown to smithereens in the two cold fronts. It's on the northwest side of the garden, fully exposed to the wind as it comes across the lake.

    I'm looking for an ID on these blotched cuttings I'm getting from Panama...

    Peyton, that looks like Ron's Grandma plant which I believe to be Ann Rutherford.

    Interesting idea, I hadn't thought of that, but there's definitely a resemblance...
    I have some baby Grandmas in the greenhouse now, so I'll have the two growing side by side once I receive these cuttings and get them rooted out - time will tell if they are the same...

    A blotched sport of Norma. It requires a lot of light to maintain such coloring. Otherwise it becomes absolutely dark and never gets back to initial Normal with color veins and spots (pic 3)
