    :) This is not a political thread here, topic is about a Croton. I purchased this one from the society at the USF sale some years ago as President Reagan. This Croton is a very slow grower and stands under a foot tall after all this time. Looks nothing like my other P. Regan. So any ID thoughts from the group?

    Stump the chumps time here. All three growing in the yard here. Pics taken this morning. Which one is Pres. Reagan? First two are 5 ft apart and third is 25 ft away and gets a bit more direct light.

    hint: First one purchased as Corot; third was air layer from first. I cannot see any difference other than the one in the middle seems to have more reds or dark orange in autumn and is the slowest growing of the three.

    I have the same plant tagged P.R., I got it from Marie. That day I got three plants all tagged P.R. All oak leaf all colored close but not the same. I am a Democrat so I expect P.R. To do a flip flop.

    Phil, Nice looking plants as always! What is that beauty of a pink Croton I spy a little of on the upper right in the first photo?

    Thanks Phil! That photo jogged my memory that I had that plant for a few months.

    Lamar, Thanks for the offer, but Madame hates the cold.
