Over the years, I often wonder what this croton could be. Any ideas?
Wish I knew, and google was no help on this one...
Resembles White Tapestry.
I thought that it was stated in an earlier post that White Tapestry was such a difficult cultivar to maintain even in the best of conditions and is presumed to be lost forever?
Jeff's plant seems like the closest thing to the Charlemagne in the book. We spent some time looking at this plant and searching on-line. Its hard to tell by Jeff's photo, in person it really looks like Charlemagne.
If it is not, then it will be an unknown confused to be a Charlemagne IMO. White Tapestry?, don't we all wish.
I had WT and lost it in the 2010 freeze. Since then, Keith has replenished me with another plant. From what I remember, there's a huge plant near his mother's home. As big as the plant was, I'd say it was fairly easy to grow. I found my original plant at Jesse Durko's without a label. It was slow but never gave me any problems before 2010.
Bought this as a Charlemagne Looks like Jeffs , Its just still small . Mine ive had over a year just starting to show the yellows . Leaves look the same starts with yellow center but it is starting to flush yellows
