Here is one I found yesterday. Name on tag is Fiesta is that correct ?
Here are a few more pictures showing the mixture of leaf shapes.
Your croton looks more like Twist and Point (p, 130 in Brown's book). The leafh shape for Fiesta is very different and it's pictured on p. 107.
I agree with Marie. Here's Fiesta:
I have twist and shout and it looks very similar to yours Scott.
Here's Twist and Point:
Did you mean Twist and Point ?
hehe.yup. Both interesting plants (Twist and Turn & Twist and Point) I would like to share both my pics but i dun have them with me at the moment.=) Will upload some some other day. heheheh.
call it whatever, but it's been showing up in 3 gal pots in the local big box stores. Anything for a change from the usual drek
Onward through the fog.......?
Fiesta's synonym is Illustris. Ricky, any chance you can air layer that one for me? That's one I'd like to replace for sure.
Ray - I had three in the ground. One is still there and it's only around 15" tall. The other two were in a bad spot, so I yanked them out several days ago and threw them into 3-gallon cans. One of those I gave to a friend who just moved to Jupiter from Miami. The other one is yours, assuming it survives the rugged transplant.
Fiesta is a recent acquisition for me. I am ready to plant it but would like some advice as to how much sun does it prefer?
Your input is appreciated!
The more sun, the more yellow. In the shade, it stays mostly green.
Is this a Fiesta ? Leaf shapes are all over the place. The name tag at the local H.I. store had Gold Dust
Ricky, did the transplanted Fiesta's survive?
No. There's still one in the ground from several years ago, but the transplants withered and died. The only one that survived is in a pot where it's getting intensive care. I'll do some cuttings in the spring.
