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 ...
Mammie sports in my hood.

Mammie Sported to a Congo which is 4
years old , now its sporting back to Mammie ...... go figure !
