  1. Hi

    Firstly I just wanted to say a big "Hi" to all. This is my first post and I am a big croton fan

    I wanted to post a pic of this croton sold here as "Bangkok Flame". I can't seem to find any info on it (growth, history ect) and was wondering if anyone could offer anything. It is relatively fast growing and very cold hardy, although it doesn't seem to color-up much for me (it is in partial sun, so maybe that has something to do with it). I think it is a tall grower and not one for branching much.

    Welcome to the forum :) I cannot say that I have seen this one before.It might just get a bit more colour in more sun ,you should set a cutting and try it in a different location.

    Hey Adam! Good to see that Dean was able to get you registered.

    There are many varieties of croton cultivars that have been developed down under that have not made it to the States. Captain Kidd is the only cultivar I am framilar with that is of an Australian origin.

    Adam - Keep those photos coming. Most of us are in Florida. I love looking at crotons, especially ones I've never seen. :eek: Hope you will be coming here for the 2014 IPS Biennel. I know a few gardens loaded with Palms & great croton collections. ;)
     

  4. Thanks Moose. Actually I may get to visit next year, but I wouldn't be able to bring anything back with our strict quarantine laws. Maybe I could bring an Aussie cultivar not there yet!

    Here are some of the more common crotons available here. Not all of them are listed on the Wiki page and some (such as Mona Lisa) are completely different.:

    Welcome aboard the Croton Forum! The "Lemon Sorbet" from down under is sure nice. Wonder if that cultivar is grown here, under a different name?
