    Fotos 3 and 4 : Foto 3 is the unkown in a street-side garden and 4 is the corresponding enlargement…ID please.

    I think the first one is one of the pink Veitchiis and I think the second is Lyrata.

    Robert has been sending me photos and when I get some free time, we are going to start a page highlighting crotons in the Costa Rican landscape. There sure are some beauties!

    Hello Marie...many thanks for your reply. I think you are right on with Lyrata...I didn't know the name. Hopefully the other Croton Gurus will "chime in" soon.

    9 & 10 look like Kentucky; 11 & 12 look like a 'blacked out' Bravo. Some like the purple look (generally due to low light)

    Robert, The Croton in pics 5&6 looks like it may be Zanzibar. Here is a pic of my late Zanzibar...

    Don,

    I like the choices here that our members made. Veitchii and Kentucky especially.
