    For those of you that are fans of this old standard cultivar…these fotos are for you. It took me awhile before I developed a taste for ANDREANUM but I am also now an aficionado…WOW!

    NOTE: If you click on the foto in order to see the enlargement or a second click for the maximum size (I recommend it) you will see the name ANDREANUM in the lower right corner. The second word is simply the town, neighborhood or locale where I took the photograph for my information and/or if I want to return for a re-shoot I can find it!

    Andreanum is pretty variable plant.A few of them look really good but all the ones I have had have ended up looking bleached out and crappy.I need to get a good example of this cultivar.thanks for pics

    It's a beautiful plant that's a reliable and hardy grower.

    Probably the most common croton you come across down there? I wish ALL crotons grew as well as Andreanum does. Lol. Thanks Robert
