    I ran into these photos while purging my files of extraneous pix (duplicates, filed incorrectly or waiting to be filed, etc.). Here are 16 photos taken in the San Jose, Costa Rican Central Plateau.

    There are probably a couple hundred images in this aforementioned folder. Some of which I feel could be informative or interesting enough to share with the CROTON SOCIETY membership. I can probably glean about two…maybe 3 (16 foto submissions) from this file.

    CAVEAT: I am not an accomplished "CROTON IDENTIFIER". That being said, here goes the first installment…

    1) TWO FACED (Two CROTONS)…NO IDEA. Although I find this cultivar all over San Jose, I have not been able to stick a name on it. HELP PLEASE with ID :confused:.
    2) TWO FACED…A closer look :confused:.
    3) TWO FACED…NO IDEA. The other side of this two faced coin which also is very popular here. HELP PLEASE with ID :confused:.
    4) TWO FACED… A closer look :confused:.

    8) BUDDY…Looks like the gardener placed a pair of PETRAS along the bottom of this BUDDY grouping.

    Many THX Scott...your comments are well received. I am still hoping some of the veteran "CROTON IDENTIFIERS" chime in and I.D. the two CROTONS I'm trying to pin down. Where are you folks...you know who you are. :):confused:

    The unidentified croton looks very much like the croton that is called Bermuda Red.Maybe Marie can confirm??

    Mike, Bermuda Red was my guess on the first one too.
