When I got this one it was in pretty bad shape its been trying to color up .
okay moose that one we don't know about lets see a pic they came from the same plant
I know it's still small, but does it color up much more? Any other pictures of a bigger plant?
What, ahhhh, hmmmmm - lets see if I can find it
Jeff this came from Mr. Shelton , it wasn't very nice cutting at the time. its been getting some love and care ,this is the best its grown for me this season its been coloring very slowly but has been growing will post as colors start showing
Nice, it's a plant I don't have, nor know much about it. Keep us inform as it gets bigger and color's up. Thanks.
I guess I will just have to give you a piece jeff
This plant was obtained as a small cutting. It has been relatively slow but has accelerated this growing season. The mild winter sure didn't hurt. This cultivar has been growing in some pretty heavy shade so the coloring potential has yet to be determined. The objectivity was to develope a intense root system and vigorous plant. It will go into the ground after March in a nice high canopy filtered light area.
This croton also had a heavy infestation of spider mites a couple of months ago. Probably effecting the coloring. I hate those little bastards. They muliply so darn quick.
A few more shots ...
looking good there moose the blue background pretty nice thanks for posting pic
Sure looks like the Connie Cutler ....Page 87 in the book Mother plant gets lots of sun is even more yellows and burnt oranges , my plant got attacked by my pet hog , now its cuttings again waiting on the stump to regrow , mother plant is 35 years old or older owner says . Needless to say pig is gone !!!!!!!!
not connie cutler david, looks like stewartii
I agree, it looks like Stewartii.
I'm going to post some pictures of a croton that we got in Hawaii perhaps 10 years ago. This year I changed the lighting on a cutting and it is looking very much like the picture of Connie Cutler to me. Some of you have this croton from me and it would have Nii and a # on the label. The leaf shape, coloring and splotching are very similar. Let me know what you think.
Here are some updated photos of what we have as Connie Cutler. The leaves are getting bigger and she may be getting her mojo going. I've had one unnamed person telling me "its just Columbiana". Using my "croton eye", I don't think so ...
Onward through the fog ...
going to plant my connie cutler in more sun hope to color up
thanks to Bill for my new acquisition.
Connie Cutler is finally in the ground and looking happy. The cool overnight temperatures has not fazed her one bit.
I got a Connie Cutler for trading purposes.. Big and we'll rooted. PM me if you are interested.
