    What vibrant, almost electric color, Jerry. I absolutely love Congo. One of my favorites in my garden, although it pales in comparison to yours. Do people snub this cultivar? Can't imagine many prettier crotons.

    The story I heard is that Congo is a sport from Mammie. Here is what I have as Congo given to me by Mike Woolery. It does not look like Jerry's so ... :confused:

    Mammie sports in my hood. image.jpg . The last pic. Is an impossible dreamer that is a seed stalk just a matter of time before it falls off. The first is the early stages of Congo. The second is called Indian Headdress I think.
