    This is a croton that I was able to get many years ago from the old Richard Krukonis property. Because it was never named, for propagation purposes, I'm calling it......."Catch of the Day". It's just now finally coming around with it's full potential of colors and has a long slender leaf. You have to see it in person to really appreciate this one.

    Yeah, I see that one all over. Since it's so common, I'll take that one off your hands Jeff ;)

    I was very happy today when I walked over to this croton and noticed where I took the two air layers off, there's 7 new sprouts coming up. NOW, that's what I'm talking about!!!!:D

    Having spotted this beauty in Jeff's yard, it is truly amazing. Unfortunately it appears to be a very slow grower. :(

    There is a rumor that this cultivar may make an appearance in the loud auction (not the silent one) tomorrow. :rolleyes:
