    Does anyone know the origins of this rare cultivar? :confused: Does anyone have a nice photo of one they could post?

    I just moved mine into more light. The shade was not to its liking.

    Randy - how much sun exposure does yours get? Remembering the aspect of your garden, where did you plant yours? Just want to know so I can attempt to duplicate your coloring!!! :cool:

    I knew cameo had potential of being a interrupted croton because the leaf was so skinny in the middle, now
    that mine is about 4 feet tall, it is getting a lot of interrupted leaves.
