    Came upon a Croton today, but blew it off. It looked sorta like Gold Dust, but leaves were a little longer and a little more narrow. It is not Punctaum as leaf was longer. The leaf stems are red on the newest growth. Any idea what it might be?

    Scott, there's a longer leaf version of Punctatum called Von Oostereezii (no joke). I don't think this one has red petioles however. How about a photo?

    Thanks again Ray! I was looking at the picture of Goldfinger in the Crotons Of The World book yesterday. That was my best guess, but I could not see the red petioles in the pic. in the book.
